20 Pages Posted: 6 Jun 2006
This edition of InSight offers an analysis of the poverty outreach of ACCION's affiliate SOGESOL in Haiti. It is the second in a series of ACCION poverty assessments performed as part of our Poverty Outreach project. Here, we evaluate the poverty levels of SOGESOL clients relative to the Haitian national and urban populations as well as international poverty lines. We also examine demographic, socioeconomic and microenterprise characteristics of clients in relation to their level of poverty and compare characteristics of SOGESOL clients with Haiti's national and metropolitan populations.
