Job Creation through Public Market Rehabilitation
Markets have long formed the epicentre of activity in communities around the globe, acting as sustainable drivers of urban development. As spaces where vendors can sell their goods to the local community, markets generate economic benefit for the vendors, as well as the local government through the levying of taxes.
Not only do they create employment and entrepreneurial opportunities, they also provide social and cultural services that facilitate social interaction for the wider community.
