Haiti - Politic : ONA, Balance and perspectives 2020
At the beginning of the new year, this is the opportunity for the Directorate General of the National Old Age Insurance Office (ONA) to remind that despite the socio-political crisis and challenges of all kinds, the ONA has increased in the past year, the access of its products and services to the greatest number and brought very significant changes in the sector.

"In 2019, the ONA proved to be one of the main assets of all insured workers and all pensioners to face these challenges, united and strong. Obviously, it was deployed as a vast multifaceted project, in order to catch up with the delay observed in various sectors [...] In addition to mortgage loans, it should be mentioned :

ONAFanm a microfinance program which enables "madan sara", who do not have easy access to traditional credit, to benefit from loans at an unbeatable rate of 1%. To date, no less than 12,000 women from associations in the ten (10) departments have already benefited from it https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28682-haiti-onafanm-375-loans-of-25-000-gourdes-to-small-merchants.html

ONA Diaspora, a product [launched in 2018] which allows ONA policyholders who have left the country to continue paying their contributions. ONA Diaspora is also open to any other person living in the diaspora, who can thus pay their contributions online, and possibly benefit from loans in order to make investment projects in the country. https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-26461-haiti-politic-official-launch-of-ona-diaspora.html

ONAPAM, a program which aims to offer credits to policyholders and other middle-income economic agents, with an interest rate that no one can compare https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-4546-haiti-economy-launch-of-the-onapam-credit-for-low-and-middle-income.html . During its evolution, Onapam has diversified its products: Onapam I and II, Consumer credit (Credit 50), Biznispam https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-6780-haiti-economy-ona-will-launch-the-project-biznis-pam.html , thus increasing its revenues, and meeting the obligations to make its funds grow through a structured and profitable system."

Let's rmember that in 2019, ONA also joined the Youth Entrepreneurship Support Program (PAPEJ) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-29343-haiti-economy-ona-grants-prime-loans-to-young-entrepreneurs.html which helps fight unemployment among young people through entrepreneurship. It facilitates their training in financial education, the granting of credit on preferential terms, and personalized follow-up until the repayment ends. As part of this partnership, the 142 companies selected are funded at only 12% per year.

In 2020, the ONA intends to strengthen its presence among the population and proposes to extend social security coverage to workers in the formal sector who are not yet registered, and especially workers in the informal sector who are completely excluded from the system. Among the innovative projects under construction, the ONA directorate cites :

" ONA-Collectivités, through which ONA wishes to affirm its commitment in favor of the access to rights and privileges of the insured to all the agents of communities, and to strengthen its policy of support for these agents as close as possible to their commune.

ONA-LaPolice, voluntary insurance coverage that will allow police offciers to enjoy the same privileges as ONA policyholders. This is a possible solution for the enhancement of this body in terms of social benefits.

ONA-Solidarité which will mark the integration of ONA into the National System for Risk and Disaster Management in order to guarantee a prompt and orderly post-disaster economic recovery for traders in the microcredit sector and policyholders.

ONA-ETIDYAN, https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-27350-haiti-ona-etudiants-internship-or-socio-professional-integration-project-for-1-000-young-university-students.html which will allow ONA to host, in rotation every three months, around 1,000 young graduating students, in order to conduct a census of businesses not yet affiliated, and of old people as part of universal security. https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-25025-haiti-notice-temporary-suspension-of-the-launch-of-the-ona-etidyan-program.html

ONA-Education, a flexible and complete product, which is obviously aimed at teachers in school educational establishments. From 55 years of age and 20 years of contributions, the teacher is eligible for the privileges granted to all insured persons."

Wishes from the ONA :
"May the new year offer us the opportunity to get closer and unite for the emergence of the new Haiti that we all dream of. The ONA wishes you to approach 2020 in a spirit of active solidarity towards the most vulnerable and in this spirit of patriotic union and hope for the well-being of the common homeland.

For a Haiti that believes in its future, a proud and strong Haiti, carrying new promises that it is up to us to transform, beyond our commitments, our convictions, our beliefs; for an enlarged and modernized social protection system, adapted to the needs and expectations of all, the ONA remains, today more than ever, at the service of the population."
