Japanese Cucumber Financing Program
Several graduates from the Garden Training Program have been provided with Micro Financing to set up their own small business growing Japanese Cucumbers. Participants are provided with ongoing support from our agronomist and are able to harvest a crop of cucumbers every two days. There is a local demand for this produce which provides a regular income for the growers. It takes only $500 US to set up a cucumber garden and enable another family to become self- sufficient.
