When doing business in Haiti, do you trust family, friends, or strangers?

I heard stories from haitians in the diaspora who had terrible experiences leaving business partners in Haiti to run thing only to discover when they arrive that there is nothing left.

I would love to hear your personal experience on this matter.

What do you think about that?

Je parle à de nombreux hommes d'affaires en Haiti et ils me disent NE JAMAIS laisser un membre de la famille pour diriger votre entreprise ...

d'autres disent qu'ils ne font confiance à personne, sauf en famille.

Que dis-tu?

I would say not to do business with family members.

That does not mean you cannot give them something; however, do not trust of leaving your enterprise behind expecting family members will make it progress.

It is not only for Haitians but that applies to almost every community.

As a white american who loves and goes back and forth to Haiti I am very angry right now, me and a friend of mine wanted to open a restaurant and jazz club in Petion-ville It was my dream for many years.

We brought a large amount of money to Haiti and gave it to a very close friend of mine who was like family to me. He owns the property.

We waited for things to get done and i found out he ran off with our money never using it for the restaurant.
