Play • 49 min


It was always my intention to use this platform not just as a means to bring you guys a colourful array of distinguished and knowledgeable guests -  but also, on a more personal front, to use it at an opportunity to highlight the work and achievement of fellow Haitian entrepreneurs, creators and notable personalities.

It's become even more important for my generation to band together in its efforts to shed a more positive message of collaboration during these troubling times that our home country is going through.

With these interviews, I can only hope to do my part in that regard as it is always essential to celebrate those who are in the proverbial trenches and giving their all in order to create better opportunities for their fellow Haitians.

Such is the mission that has fueled my next guest and her relentless commitment to disrupt a long-established if not to say traditional industry.

Safe to say that Pascale Elie, CEO and Founder of HaitiPay, a FinTech company specialized in providing electronic payment services, was anything but blind to the realities facing her in the uphill battle that she was facing.

HAITIPAY uses an innovative mobile payment platform that instantly transforms any mobile phone into a secure electronic means of payment.

Simply put - Money transfers are a MASSIVE deal in Haiti. And the gatekeepers know it.

As a trained Economist with a solid experience in insurance and mobile banking industries, Pascale was more than equipped in her dedication to re-shape the narrative within this specific part of the Haitian financial sector and create put both convenience and opportunity in the hands of the people who need it most.

It's these 'David & Goliath' stories that get me jazzed and this one is no different. Join me as Pascale and I share an engaging and intimate conversation on the importance of resilience, never backing down, keeping true to your values, knowing your why, and so much more.
