We’ve had a great year for our Micro-Enterprise businesses! GB Jerk continues to be a winner. People drive from Ochi to taste our Jerk and locals always flood the ice-cream side on Sunday afternoons. Did we mention GB Jerk sauce is in big demand from the locals? Thanks to Ms. Shirley and MacGyver, it is a hit!
Our farms are producing more and more peppers – and now over 400 pineapple! We are hiring young men and women from our special needs school that we partner with, Edge Hill, to work our farms and be taught a trade. Whipper businesses (weed eaters) are “cutting a trail” with work in Port Maria. Naniki Naturals is busy filling orders and expanding their business, making and selling their all-natural soaps and skincare products. Our court bailiff business is hiring another person to handle the work load the courts are sending their way. Our honey bee business is buzzing, and many more micro loans are going out in 2019. Just wait for Cloud 9 chocolate to begin producing. We are looking forward to making our mark in the chocolate world, with some of the finest Jamaican cocoa products around!
Micro-Enterprise is just one way ACE helps get people back on their feet, finding joy in a job well done and paving a path to success. Thank you for all your time, donations and efforts in supporting these fine businesses!
