Distribution Enterprises

Chakipi Haiti SA

Acceso – Chakipi Haiti SA (Chakipi) provides livelihood and empowerment for entrepreneurs, primarily women, in low-income rural and peri-urban areas by providing a supply of competitively priced consumer goods, nutritious and affordable food, and essential value added items such as: clean cook stoves and solar lighting for resale into their communities.

Chakipi removes key barriers and challenges most large companies face when trying to access base-of-the-pyramid populations in developing and emerging economies. Typical challenges include difficult terrain, scattered and fragmented populations, and lack of infrastructure, which all undermine opportunities for viable economic activity. Chakipi closes this market gap and sees women as key contributors to poverty alleviation in Haiti, as women are typically more economically underutilized and also more likely to invest their earnings in the needs of their family.

Chakipi will train and empower over 2,000 Haitians over the next 4 years while positively impacting the livelihoods of over 155,000 individuals.
