Haiti Economic Development Fund
The HEDF is a grass roots private investment fund designed to continue the mission of investing in small and medium-sized local Haitian businesses. The initial goal of the Fund is to take the unique combination of public funding and private skill and encourage free-market development through loans and equity investments in small and medium sized enterprises. It is hoped that every dollar invested by the Funds will attract an additional two dollars from other investors. The final goal is that all Enterprise Funds will have transitioned to the private sector by seeding and raising private equity funds, which in turn will raise follow-on private equity funds that stay in Haiti, fueling more economic growth through investment.
