Grand Opening: Ferme Avicole Entrepreneurs Sociaux de Nicolas

By | News | No Comments

It is with great pleasure that we announce the grand opening of one of our social businesses – Ferme Avicole Entrepreneurs Sociaux de Nicolas!

This poultry farm consists of 6 broiler houses with a total capacity of 2,000 broilers producing at least 400 broilers each week. The farm, located just outside of the city Mirebalais in the central part of Haiti, will create 3 direct jobs in the community, create a local economy around the sale of chicken, and most of all, the necessary funds to operate an elementary school for 295 children of the community.

With the help of USAID, Haiti Broilers, FATEM (Foundation for the Technological and Economic Advancement of Mirebalais), AKPN (Asosyasyon Kalezye Peyizan Nicolas) and the community member of Nicolas who donated the land on which the school was built, we are able to create positive economic and social impact in Haiti together!
