Wednesday, the third day of the International Finance Summit, began with a session on public finance, introduced by Jean Soukar, Project Manager of the United States Agency for International Enveloppement (USAID / Finance Inclusive).
Subsequently Mrs Georgette Jean-Louis, Director General of the Bank of the Republic of Haiti (BRH) presented the survey “Finscope Haiti” an USAID project led by “Finance Inclusive” and implemented by the DAI. A steering committee chaired by Georgette Jean-Louis, comprising representatives of the Haitian financial sector and other national and international bodies, ensured the quality of the information collected during the survey. According to the survey results 46% of the country’s adult population is completely excluded from the financial system.
“This data will enable service providers to understand the financial needs of the population in order to provide an adequate response,” said Georgette Jean-Louis.
