Guivenie Pierre-Paul



Guivenie Pierre-Paul hails from the rural region of Montagne Lavoute. Growing up in an extremely impoverished environment, she worked hard to finish her education, first in classical studies in Montagne Lavoute, then receiving a bachelor's degree from the American University of Modern Sciences in Jacmel, where her thesis explored the causes of the current political and economic crisis in Haiti.


Guivenie then went on to complete professional certificates in accounting and business computing, as well as an internship with the local manufacturing supply firm Matheka.

Cultural Capital Haiti hired this dynamic young talent to work with our partner projects to help them implement best practices when it comes to accounting and business administration. Her work is key to our commitment to providing transparency to donors.
