World Bank COO Sri Mulyani Indrawati and Haiti’s Minister of Economy and Finance Marie Carmelle Jean-Marie share experiences as they travel together in Haiti.

For two hours both women crisscrossed of Delmas 32, a neighborhood of Port-au-Prince on this hot day by foot. Streets and alleys are buzzing with life and traffic. There are freshly painted homes, streetlights and a new canal system where not long ago rubble from collapsed homes had buried whole families.

Delmas 32 is a tangled web of narrow alleys, defined by haphazard housing and makeshift structures. This community has been digging its way out of the 2010 earthquake, slowly but surely, and large piles of sand, rubble, bricks, and rebar pushing to the sky are a constant reminder of the work that remains.
