Mireille Is on the Road to Financial Stability

Three years ago, a massive earthquake destroyed Mireille Henry's home in Haiti, killing her mother and trapping her daughter under the rubble for five hours.

The mother of four lost everything she owned. Mireille didn't even have a spoon to feed her children, she says, or a blanket to keep them warm. She relocated to a field with her family. On the luckiest days, they got to sleep under a tree.

But Mireille has rebuilt her life, through the help of her community and an innovative microsavings program, introduced by CARE to Haiti and Mireille's community in 2011. The program serves the poorest of the poor – people who do not otherwise have access to the types financial services much of the world takes for granted.
