Puilboreau, Haiti

Puilboreau is located on the mountain hillsides north of Gonaives, Haiti along Route 1.  There has been no foreign aid in this areas and very little development.  Most locals depend on agriculture which has been declining  due to drought and insufficent farming methods.  With the leadership of Pastor Jeannot, the local community has pooled its resources to create a commercial grind mill to help bring sustainable income.  Route 3 is also being developed to give access from Gonaives to Cap Haitien in the north.
