Leading Ladies: Apparel alum relocates to Haiti to create products and jobs | The Daily Texan


Busby relocated to Haiti after graduating in May 2012 with a double major in apparel design and retail merchandising. In December 2013, Busby began running a new business, Fait La Force, which is a collection of goods that are marketed for buyers outside of the country and made by local Haitian artisans.

“The physical and emotional challenges into this culture have been so worth it,” Busby said. “It’s challenging, but I feel like it’s a diamond in the rough.”

Busby’s relationship with Haiti began when she took a trip to the country as a student with a campus group her sophomore year. Following that first trip, she returned several times to Haiti to work with the local artisans before making her move in September  2012.  via | The Daily Texan
