PlantOGram provides high quality exotic fruit tree gifts from all over the globe. Founder Mitesh Popat said, “A gift shouldn’t be something that you keep for a couple of days, weeks and then discard. A Gift should hold a special place in your heart and remind you of your recipient and makes a great story for generations.”
Fonkoze was founded in 1994 by Father Joseph Philippe, a Haitian priest who wanted to enable the rural poor in Haiti to organize themselves economically. He chose to focus on Haitian women, who are considered the poto mitan (“backbone”) of the Haitian economy. 44% of all Haitian households are headed by single women, and they dominate the landscape of small commerce. In 1995, Fonkoze was recognized as an official Haitian foundation. With three volunteers working from a borrowed building, Father Joseph began the process of providing financial services to Haiti’s rural poor. Since then, Fonkoze has grown into a globally recognized institution with 45 branches covering every area of Haiti, providing both financial and development services including education and health to support our 60,000-plus microfinance borrowers.
