Document Details:

In 2009, Haiti’s national telecom company – Teleco – was rapidly losing market share and nearly $1.5 million a month in public funds. IFC helped the Government of Haiti and Viettel form a partnership that has turned around the fortunes of the company. Today, the new company – Natcom Haiti – has gone from 75,000 customers to 1.8 million and is turning a profit for both Viettel and the government.
