The robbery, which occurred late night July 15-16, 2012, left people in Thomonde speechless, inclucing the local judge Wilfrid Lariviere

This is unheard of, Wilfrid says, a unique experience... An unprecedented disaster that no one expected...

Really???

There are ONLY FOUR (4) COPS in Thomonde

Yes... ONLY 4 police officers in Thomonde Haiti, a town with 57,000 residents.

And people are shocked because there was a bank robery?

Fondasyon Kole Zepol (Fonkoze) is Haiti's Alternative Bank for the Organized Poor. Fonkoze is the largest microfinance institution (MFI) in Haiti, serving more than 56,000 women borrowers, most of whom live and work in the countryside of Haiti, and more than 250,000 savers.

What do you think about this?
