  • Haiti's Pepe Trade: How Secondhand American Clothes Became a First-Rate Business

    "Haiti has practically become a trash can," says Ketcia Pierre-Louis, "where everything people in other countries don't need comes here." Pierre-Louis is a businesswoman and affiliate of the Croix-des-Bouquets Chamber of Commerce, just outside of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Like many critics of imported second-hand clothing, which is known locally as "pepe," she believes the practice undercuts domestic businesses and industries. Some have even called for the government to ban the practice. But Haiti's pepe trade is decidedly a business—not a charity. In fact, it starts with Haitian Americans buying goods at U.S. thrift stores and shipping products to Port-au-Prince and other ports. Pepe may include hand-me-downs, but the clothing is high-quality, stylish, and cheap. More important, average Ha...

  • Marriott and Digicel Open Haiti Hotel

    In partnership with the Digicel Group and the Clinton Global Initiative, February 2015 saw Marriott International open its first-ever property in Haiti: the 170 room, $145 million Marriott Port-au-Prince Hotel. This project demonstrates how hotel development can be a model for social innovation and community investment. Along with the opening came 200 new jobs for local Haitians, often from underserved communities. Marriott collaborated with Haiti’s Ministry of Tourism to select Haitian youth to train at the nearby JW Marriott Hotel Santo Domingo and return to Haiti after a 12-week internship to become entry-level supervisors. Marriott also worked with World Central Kitchen to build the skills and training of Haiti’s hospitality workforce through a newly designed hospitality curriculum...

Wide of destruction STORYLINE Frustration was mounting on Sunday in Haiti''s shattered capital, Port-au-Prince, as suspected looters gathered at a damaged business, scavenging items. Many survivors were still waiting for food and water after Tuesday''s devastating magnitude-7 earthquake. Haitians seemed increasingly frustrated by a seemingly invisible government and rescue workers were exasperated by the struggle to get aid through the small, damaged and clogged airport run by US military controllers and to get it from the airport into town. Doctors Without Borders said on Sunday that a cargo plane carrying a field hospital was denied permission to land at the airport and had to be rerouted through the Dominican Republic - creating a 24-hour delay in setting up a crucial field hospital. A reliable death toll may be weeks away, but the Pan American Health Organisation estimates 50 to 100-thousand died, but Haitian officials believe the number is higher.

"Haiti has practically become a trash can," says Ketcia Pierre-Louis, "where everything people in other countries don't need comes here." Pierre-Louis is a businesswoman and affiliate of the Croix-des-Bouquets Chamber of Commerce, just outside of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Like many critics of imported second-hand clothing, which is known locally as "pepe," she believes the practice undercuts domestic businesses and industries. Some have even called for the government to ban the practice. But Haiti's pepe trade is decidedly a business—not a charity. In fact, it starts with Haitian Americans buying goods at U.S. thrift stores and shipping products to Port-au-Prince and other ports. Pepe may include hand-me-downs, but the clothing is high-quality, stylish, and cheap. More important, average Haitians prefer the choice of wearing such apparel—and brands like Polo, Lacoste, and Converse—to not having access to such products at all. Far from turning Haiti into a trash can, the market in pepe shows how buyers and sellers enrich each other through exchange. Produced by Tate Watkins and Jon Bougher. Approximately 4 minutes.
