Jamaica: "These greenhouses belong to us"

Louise Lawrence was unemployed when she heard about a course in greenhouse technology. She is now a farmer and earns a living. Louise’s greenhouse is one of the 172 built under the government Rural Economic Development Initiative (REDI) supported by the World Bank. Louise and more than 1,400 people have been employed and turned into small agricultural producers through this initiative. They learned new farming and marketing methods and how to connect to new markets, such as local hotels, to sell their production.
