Haitian Native Eager to Offer His Countrymen Jobs through Social Enterprise

Posted: Updated:

Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world with more than three quarters of the population of this island nation surviving on less than $2 per day. In recent years, the situation has worsened due to some horrific natural disasters including an earthquake in 2010 which killed almost 316,000 people and left almost 1.6 million homeless. In the wake of such heartrending conditions, many people have attempted to lift the Haitian people out of poverty. Among the most important of these job creation efforts is a project by native Haitian Natanael Ulien which will help create spicy peanut butter, a staple of the Haitian diet.

Natanael Ulien developed this idea after receiving his International Business Management degree from Brigham Young University. Upon returning to his home country, he discovered the severe lack of jobs. After leading several business seminars, he learned that many Haitians are eager to start their own businesses as long as they were based on traditional and reliable monetization models. Natanael Ulien chanced upon the idea of producing spicy peanut butter which is a common breakfast and lunch item, and is an excellent source of protein for the impoverished.

After starting a small peanut butter factory, Natanael Ulien was forced to close due to a lack of capital. Although this setback was unfortunate, Natanael Ulien remains committed to helping his country. In order to establish a viable peanut butter operation, Natanael Ulien has sponsored a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter. The raised funds will go towards purchasing equipment, materials and production facilities. More importantly, this will allow him to hire many Haitians who can earn a living wage and support their families. Contributions will be rewarded with samples of spicy peanut butter, seats on the advisory board and trips to Haiti.
