However, the political situation prior to the earthquake and then the earthquake, have not permitted it to have as much of an impact upon investment as hoped for.

USAID-funded Local Enterprise and Value Chain Enhancement (LEVE) project strives to increase economic growth and employment opportunities in Haiti. LEVE will expand opportunities for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to generate employment for Haitian men, women, and youth in the three development corridors: Port-au-Prince, Saint-Marc and Cap-Haïtien. LEVE will improve the competitiveness of key sectors: construction, apparel and textile, and agribusiness, working with select value chains with the most potential for growth. LEVE project’s four main components are:
Component 1: Enable MSMEs to engage with other value chain actors to mutually create value.
Component 2: Increase MSMEs access to a productive labor pool with relevant skills and competencies.
Component 3: Improve the sustainability of Haitian organizations serving target sectors and corridors.
Component 4: Identify and improve synergies among existing programs and activities.
