Haiti faces an uphill battle in rebuilding its economy. Through Calvert Foundation's Community Investment Note, investors can support organizations that lift people out of poverty through microfinance. Fonkoze is one of the organizations in our portfolio that provide job training, support on family issues, and microfinance lending that serves Haiti.
Investments targeted internationally go toward this type of support to developing nations. To open an investment - or to increase your current investment - please contact Patrick Davis at 800.248.0337 or 301.280.1376.
