Haiti is a country living primarily from agriculture. However, even on fertile farmland farmers encounter difficulties in improving their yields. They often lack adequate farming techniques, means to develop their land, and trainings on how to improve their work.
In Haiti only 60% of the population receives a meal a day. Today, Haiti must invest 80% (326 Million USD) of its export revenue to re-import food: 50% of its consumption of dairy products, 75-85% of its cereals and almost 100% of its sugar and oils. In addition, more than 1 million Haitians have left their land and their country to seek a better future in the Dominican Republic.
