First mobile money cash transfer for housing repairs kicks off in Haiti

Haiti’s earthquake-affected households started to receive cash installments through the first ever mobile money transfer mechanism to support post-disaster housing reconstruction. Over the next three months, 1,000 low-income households will be receiving monetary subsidies totalling  US$500 to purchase high-quality construction materials at certified stores. The initiative is part of the ‘Community Support Centres for House Repairs’, a partnership between the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the Government of Haiti, and Digicel.
