Banking in Haiti
I went to do some banking. I walked into the bank with 5000 gourdes of cash, my ID papers, my bank account books and a desire to leave with a 'certified check' that I need to renew my PERMIT that allows me to stay here long term. That was my plan.
They quickly told me that there would be no chance of getting the check today. "Come back tomorrow." I had paid thirty dollars to get there, and would be paying thirty to get home. Another sixty tomorrow? I didn't smile.
In the end, they took my 5000 gourdes plus another 440 gourdes as a fee. And they gave me...nothing. I left with no check (the director who needed to sign the check was absent) and no account book (because they had no ink to record the transaction).
Sadly, it's not an atypical banking experience. Next time you go to the bank and get what you intended, be sure to say thanks.
