Return to the Island (Not the Cork, Hispanola)

Posted on October 22, 2011

I’m gearing up for an early Monday morning flight to Port-au-Prince, finally returning to Haiti. It’s been a year and a half since the earthquake and nearly two and a half years since I was there for the first time.

This time I’m returning (along with two awesome people from PR company CVOX Group) to produce documentary style videos on the mobile banking system Tcho Tcho. Nearly 85% of Haitians have a cell phone. In a partnership with YellowPepper (mobile financial network), Digicel (the extremely popular cell phone provider), and Scotiabank, Haitians can have bank accounts and perform banking functions without the need of a physical bank branch. You can get a better overview of the system from this Fast Company article.

We’re looking to highlight how the system works and how it helps Haitians better conduct business. Though it’s only a two and a half day trip I’m excited to be returning.
