When the iron market was first built back in 1891 by the administration of President Florvil Hyppolite, the population of Haiti was slightly over one million people. Port-au-Prince, the largest city, had a population of only about 70,000 people.
Today, approximately 800,000 people live in Carrefour alone. Back in 1850, the population of the entire country was 800,000. Our population has exploded from 800,000 people in 1850 to more than 10 million people today. If the government does not control this population explosion with education and family planning, the poverty in Haiti will only worsen.
