The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund made a $525,000 investment in CLYF Quincaillerie, a Haitian construction materials company. The loan and grant combination is helping CLYF provide access to quality hardware materials from a local source. The $375,000 loan will allow Port-au-Prince-based CLYF to purchase machinery to produce light-gauge steel metal studs. The $150,000 grant will support training for use of the equipment, creating up to 35 new jobs. 

By investing in a Haitian company, the Fund's grant and loan to CLYF exemplifies building back better by promoting jobs while building to international standards. 

Why We Invested in CLYF Quincaillerie
