USAID Honoring 31 Business Plan Competition (BPC) Winners, In Haiti

On Tuesday, June 3, 2015, the U.S. government through its agency for International Development (USAID), has celebrated the success of its Leveraging Effective Application of Direct Investments (LEAD) program by honoring 31 Business Plan Competition (BPC) winners, in an effort to encourage the need to continue job creation and Haitian diaspora outreach programs. The occasion was graced by the presence of the USAID Ad Interim Director Christian Barratt, the Minister of Haitians Living Abroad, M. Robert Labrousse, and representatives of the Central Bank of Haiti. The 31 winning enterprises were honored with certificates of achievement for their contribution in job creation and resilience to the Haitian economy. The LEAD program called for fulfillment of two main objectives: income generation and job creation (over 8,000 jobs have been created under the program), and enhancing the development impact of Diaspora remittances.
