About ACCESO PEANUT ENTERPRISE CORPORATION
I. Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership & Acceso Peanut Enterprise Corporation Background:
President Clinton established the William J. Clinton Foundation in 2002 with the mission to strengthen the capacity of people throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence. The Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (“Enterprise Partnership”), previously known as the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative, was established by President Clinton and the Canadian philanthropist Frank Giustra in June of 2007. It is one of 11 initiatives of the Clinton Foundation and develops social enterprises in Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia, and Africa.
The mission of the Enterprise Partnership consists in creating for-profit impact enterprises that address gaps in value chains that have the potential of connecting vulnerable communities with markets, offering sustainable opportunities for income generation and job creation. With a market driven approach, the Enterprise Partnership provides capacity building to poor communities to allow them to effectively participate in markets.
In Haiti, the Enterprise Partnership has facilitated a $1.25M investment in a supply chain impact enterprise startup, Acceso Peanut Enterprise Corporation (APEC). APEC is a peanut supply chain enterprise that provides capacity building and inputs to significantly improve peanut yield and quality, and also purchases peanuts from smallholder farmers at favorable, fixed prices, and sorts, tests and re-sells directly to large buyers and the general market. With its current investment, APEC’s business model will train and support approximately 5,000 growers over five years via a network of 35 depots in the Centre, North and Northeast departments.
