Boulanjè Manman Troll started production during the autumn of 2012. The bakery now provides 10 steady jobs. In addition, approximately 60 female sellers purchase bread from the bakery to resell on the streets. The women in Manman Troll who wish to sell bread can get a micro credit loan from Project Haiti to start up their small business. The bakery currently only produces traditional, white Haitian bread, but aims to make this as wholesome as possible.
In the autumn of 2013, an exciting cooperation between the Norwegian bakery chain Åpent Bakeri, the Peace Corps and Project Haiti will start. Manman Troll Boulanje and Åpent Bakeri will exchange six employees for 12 months. Future projects include the production of a wholegrain, European bread type which may be offered to other customer segments. We are very grateful to the Peace Corps for making this exchange program possible through their financial support!
