Abstract: This study analyses the multidimensional poverty of the women in Haiti and the impact of a resourcefulness generating activities of income, KOFAVAC, on the living conditions of those. The analytic results of the survey carried out near the women reveal that poverty affects all the dimensions of their life. The determinants of poverty are at the same time factors related to the socio-demographic and economic characteristics of the women life and her household: the size of the household, the number of children who are not attended school, the number of adults without profession and which do not undertake any gainful activity and the level of staffing off land and animals breeding. The impossibility of satisfying the needs for the household is perceived by the women as being the first sign of poverty and the factor determinant of their incapacity to remain in the system credit/saving KOFAVAC. The impact of KOFAVAC, as bearing an additional income is very weak; its support in terms of contribution to the satisfaction of the needs of food and schooling for the children is recognized by the women. Therefore, the creation of jobs and free education appear among the priority actions that the Haitian Government must undertake in Chansolme for improvement of the conditions of the population according to women's. In the same way, the search of new generating activities of incomes, assistance for housing, transformation of new products and the search for new markets are proposed by women for a better support of KOFAVAC.
