For business to resume throughout the country, Fonkoze is in need of the following: certain locations need temporary facilities, IT/communications support, transportation facilities for credit officers to reach clients in areas hardest hit by the earthquake where branches have been destroyed (Bizoton, Léogâne) or have been badly damaged (e.g., , Miragoâne, Jacmel), and counseling sessions to staff that need to secure their own situations in order to work productively under difficult conditions. The different proposed solutions for needed temporary facilities include the purchase of a pre-fab structure, which is wind resistant, water resistant, and earthquake resistant (up to 8-points on Richter scale), which has been used extensively by Opportunities International in its operations in several African countries. MIF resources are requested to fund the purchase of one such structure, as a test solution for any future need for temporary structure.
