PADF administers a USAID-funded program called LEAD (Leveraging Effective Application of Direct Investment) which supports the growth of small businesses in Haiti. The four-year, $12 million program is an effort to support long-term economic growth in the region.

So in love.

I am so in love with this company. I bought the Hair Vitamin/ Hair Loss treatment to help with my thinning edges. I have locs so I twist my hair which can lead to thinning. After using this product my hair looks healthier and fuller. And the shampoo smells amazing. The moringa powder is a great addition to the kit. Not only do I feel healthier, my skin looks more vibrant. They also added a sample of moringa oil to my order. I will definitely be buying again.

Amazing!

Delish!!

The best thing ever!!!!My skin loved it!
