All-American approach to helping Haiti: shop


Port-au-Prince, Haiti (CNN) -- Mesh Gelman's button-down khaki shirt has turned two shades darker with sweat. But he is more concerned about who will sew the perfect placket on the knit polos he hopes to deliver to Beverly Hills Polo Club.

The ones that will carry a "made in Haiti" label.

On this sweltering April day, New York entrepreneur Gelman and his business partner, Elizabeth Brown, are making the rounds at Port-au-Prince garment factories, scoping out the potential.

Gelman's mission is simple in theory. He wants Americans to help earthquake-devastated Haiti the best way they know how: by shopping.

Buy a shirt made in a Haitian factory, he says. This way, a Haitian gets a much-needed income, and a once-thriving industry in this Caribbean nation can get a jump-start on a second life.

It's the mantra of former President Clinton, the special United Nations envoy to Haiti: jobs, not charity.

Inspired by Clinton's words, Gelman, 35, began traveling to the Haitian capital to see what he could do not just to benefit his own company, Blanket America, and its parent, Extreme Linen, but to nudge other U.S. firms to invest in a ravaged economy.

"This is really about the rebranding of this country in the eyes of the American consumer," Gelman said.

A few weeks ago, Gelman and Brown, a branding and social media expert, launched a made-in-Haiti promotional campaign on Facebook. "Choose Haiti" now has about 30,000 fans.

"Think about how much aid for Haiti was raised through social media," Brown said. "So why not for this?"

Initially, Gelman and Brown intend to produce 50,000 t-shirts that say "Choose Haiti" for $9.99 each. But eventually, Gelman's company plans to produce apparel for brands like Beverly Hills Polo Club and Casual Male.

This week, Congress matched Gelman's enthusiasm for the Haitian market.

A bipartisan bill introduced Thursday opens the U.S. market to more Haitian-produced textile products by expanding the amount that qualifies for duty-free status from 70 million square meter equivalents to 200 million square meters.

The Haiti Economic Lift Program Act also extends Haiti's preferential trade status to 2020 rather than ending it in 2018, as was mandated earlier.

That opens the gates to American garment giants to make longer-term investments in Haiti, says Georges Sassine, owner of A.G. Textiles in Port-au-Prince and head of the Haitian textile industry association.

"We received a lot of aid after the earthquake, which is good, because it helped people survive," he said, surveying his factory floor. "Now it is for people to sustain themselves, and what better way to sustain yourself than having a job?"

In January, A.G. was forced to a standstill. The factory sustained earthquake damage; most of its employees lost family members and found themselves living in makeshift camps.

About a month after the January 12 tragedy, A.G. cranked up operations again.

People like Misere Cherlie, displaced from her home after the quake, found a job at A.G. She steams the wrinkles out of navy blue New Balance shorts destined for the shelves of Wal-Mart.

She is lucky, she says, to have a steady income. There are 26,000 Haitians like Cherlie who work in the textiles industry.

But A.G. is producing at about a third of capacity.

In 1992, Haiti's textile industry employed as many as 132,000 people. Years of political instability and trade embargoes slashed that number to 12,000, Sassine says.

With the help of the duty-free status afforded to Haiti by the United States, the industry started to make a slow comeback. Then, the earthquake dealt another severe blow.

Sassine hopes the new bill will help employ as many as 80,000 Haitians in this sector. He hopes that textiles, which account for almost 70 percent of Haiti's exports, will help ordinary people move up from day-to-day survival.

Sassine points to an entire section of sewing machines that has collected dust for a long time. A good cleaning and oiling should bring them back to life. One day soon, he expects, they will add to the steady hum of stitching.

Sassine greets Gelman and Brown at A.G. He says Gelman's drive is exactly what the Haitian market needs.

"If he's too successful, we'll be in trouble," Sassine joked of Gelman's venture.

He hopes new companies will enter Haiti and build the kind of infrastructure needed to sustain the industry. And new jobs in turn will fuel the building of schools, shops, entire communities.

He concedes that these are not high-quality jobs. The workers make about 200 gourdes (about $5) a day. But it's better than no job.

"What they all want," Sassine said, pointing to the workers on the assembly lines, "is education for their children."

Gelman visits another nearby factory that is making cotton shirts and blankets for his firm. It has another big client: Old Navy.

Nine employees on each line are churning out dozens of colorful cotton t-shirts for the clothing giant. The label on each collar says "made in Haiti," but Gelman wants more than that.

His products will carry a special tag announcing where they were made. He thinks U.S. customers will steer toward a Haitian product if they know that it was made here.

It's all about taking advantage of the sentiment that surged after the earthquake.

"Haitian factories don't promote themselves," Gelman said. "They have no clue how to do it. They have been off the map for so long."

He has Asian companies knocking on his door all the time for contracts.

"If you don't show up to the party, no one is going to use you," he said. "It's kind of a shame, because it's a great opportunity, especially with Haiti here being a neighbor."

Haiti is more cost-effective, and it takes less time for orders to reach their clients.

Gelman says a container carrying 600 comforters made in China costs $2,400 to ship from Shanghai to the United States. That same container will cost $800 from Port-au-Prince.

On his way to the next garment factory, Gelman's Blackberry rings.

"This is great news," he said.

He has just learned that new bill in Congress has been extended from apparel to include home fashions: bedsheets, comforters, pillow shams.

Extreme Linen, which Gelman established in 2003, serves as JCPenney's largest supplier of home fashions. Gelman hopes that Penney's stores will be flooded with Haitian products.

"This is exciting," he said.

It's a good ending for this trip to Haiti. He does not pretend to be solely a do-gooder. "Unquestionably," he said," it's about making money. We're not a nonprofit."

But when he goes home after a day's work, Gelman says, he feels good about his business decisions. He hopes that other American companies will look south to Haiti the same way.

Greed, he says, half joking, can be a very good thing.

Gen yon bann fanatik lavalas ou byen sansiblite Lavalasyen, Prevalyen ki gen memwa kout. Ou byen se jis move fanatism ki rann yo avèg. Si gen yon moun ki detri endistri tekstil se byen Aristid nan lese frape ak GNBIS. Yon endistri kite florisan , se te youn nan fleron ekonomi lokal kite lese anpil ti malere ak malerèz rale yon souf.


Peyi dAyiti te genyen anpil envestisè meriken kite tabli depwi sou Janlod Divalye jouk sou Aristide nan endistri tekstil. Le mesye militè flanke koken Aristid koudeta, li mande pou OEA ak ONU frape yon anbago sou peyi dAyiti.

Aristide ak tout Preval nan kanpe lwen flanke yon anbago malonèt ak move kalkil. Alos tout ti malere endistri sayo nan chomaj. APRE ANBAGO SELMAN KELKE ENVESTISÈ NASYONO retounen. La plipa ale an Dominikani, pa janm vle retounen. Kanta envestisè etranje yo , Ayiti vinn yon teren glise, refize retounen nan kape lwen. Malgre lwa Hope move souvni rann yon pentad.


Zafè mande mete yon anbago sou yon peyi se kakil move enbesil ou byen magouyè kap aji nan prop enterè yo, non pou yon peyi. Aristide retounen ak anpil pwoblèm ekonomik akoz yon anbago li te reklamen.

Alos yon moun pral di o wi se pou te pini koudetayis. Tchwipppp se prop ayisyen, fanm ak gason depwi tan sa yo flanke nan mizè. Wouyyyyy se la PIB peyi dAyiti rekile pa janm vle pwogrese, to dola meriken ap vale teren, mizè finn mande anraje.

Koken tankou rejim Aristide-Preval sou pouvwa kraze ekonomi yon peyi jouk pou avantaj pèsonèl yo, flanke tout yon peyi nan pinisyon.. Pandan yo menm finn rich ak prop lajan peyi nan VACH A LÈT TELEKO AK LOT FON NAN PEYI BLAN YO SEZI POU YO NAN TREZO AYISYEN.

Alos zafè voye flè pou yon endistri malgre tout avantaj, ensitasyon ki pa kap dekole se radot. Ayiti pa ta bezwen menm lwa HOPE pou devlopman tekstil. Depwi sou Janklod Divalye se yon endistri kite pran anvol li. Se rezon devlopman rapid site endistriyel ki te bati rapidman jounen jodyè ki rete vid.

Pou zafe mande :Kote Dyaspora ayisyen an ye se yon plezanteri ki pa rizib ditou

Sa vle di anpil moun ki lan chomaj pral jwenn travay pou nouri fanmi yo e fè ekonomi peyi a mache. Fok gen moun ki pou fè travay sayo kanmenm.
Sa pibon pase lonje kwi oubyen tann fanmi lan dyaspora voye lajan oubyen blan ap voye manje ak rad pèpè. 120000 anplwaye vle di apeprè 120000 fanmi lan zon Potoprens sèlman.

"We received a lot of aid after the earthquake, which is good, because it helped people survive," he said, surveying his factory floor. "Now it is for people to sustain themselves, and what better way to sustain yourself than having a job?"

Kijan envestisman lan tekstil kapab touye agrikilti?
Agrikilti toujou rete yon priyorite. Eske w ka di ke tout moun ki lan bidonvil yo pral tounen lan plantasyon e yo pa bezwen travay faktori?

Si pou Ayiti rekonstwi se pou tout nivo sosyete a lan travay.
Yon aktivite pakapab anpeche yon lot devlope.

Oumenm ki te dako pou meriken voye vye soulye yo jwen lan fatra bay ayisyen.
Oumenm Revelasyon eske w envesti lan agrikilti lan peyi a?

Si w vle investi nan agrikilti nan peyi Dayiti e ede peyi w, al achte CocaCola stock. Odwalla is based in Half Moon Bay, Calif.Coca-Cola's stock rose 38 cents to $55.25 in midday trading.
W kap vinn millione e ede peyi w an memm tan An nou diskite e debat yon fason progresis san bouilli zin, ni nan chache konnen bizniss moun nan Diaspora.

Al investi nan CocaCola.

Yo refize wè bagay yo an fas.
An palan de investise anonym , kite'm di'w ke 2 milya yo se investise anonym yo ye tout wi . Se ti pep lan diaspora kab travay di pou ede fanmi yo an ayiti .

Rev

Se pa investise anonym nou beswen lan diaspora an . Se yon kolektif ki ka develope des stratégies en macro pou stimule economi ayisien an pou les haitiens par les haitiens. Pousa ka rive fett , fok nou oganize nou lan diaspora an . Sispann pale de investise anonym . Nou beswen des vrais investiseurs capables de créer des emplois et lancer le developpement des régions en Haiti.

Bon Revelasyon, kote pwoblèm ou ye laa?
Toudabò, ou fè komsi ou reprezante yon gwoup, yon sektè, yon pati.
Mwen konnen lè wa p plede di nou, se de woumenm sèlman wa p pale se wou sèlman ka p pale. Alo sispann voye wòch kache men. Pran responsabilite w tèt kale.
Lanpwen moun ki kwè ou fè pati de okenn gwoup.

Bann pwen ke w soulve yo pa menm nesesè.
Moun ki lan Potoprens yo poko prale lan patlen yo. Setadi se pou yo jwenn travay kote yo ye a.
Sa pa afekte devlopman agrikilti.

Ekzanp Kokakola a se yon bagay mwen deja aplodi paske se youn lan kalite envestisman Ayiti bezwen. Se yon bèl bagay ki bezwen ankourajman pou lot konpayi etranje ak dyaspora vin fè lan peyi a.
Dyaspora kapab swiv ekzanp Kokakola et fè menm bagay lan eksplwate kafe oubyen kakawo oubyen yon lòt pwoduy agrikòl.

Tout bagay sayo fèt pou mache ansanm. Youn pa ekskli lòt.
Pou Ayiti devlope se travay travay travay pou pèp la jwen mwayen pou bay fanmi l sa l bezwen.
Pou fè ekonomi peyi a mache.
