The Cabaret Housing Settlement in Haiti, where about 156 houses will be built.

The Cabaret Housing Settlement in Haiti, where about 156 houses will be built, is helping to address a critical need for housing in Haiti, where more than 360,000 people continue to live in tents and other temporary housing in the wake of the 2010 earthquake. OPIC is supporting this need for housing by providing financing to Development Innovations Group (DIG) of Maryland, to support lending in amounts as small as $1,000 for mortgages and home repairs to low-income buyers. Grants from USAID and the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund are also supporting the project.
