Abstract

The following article is based almost entirely on a report written in March 2006 about the St Mary Rural Development Project (SMRDP) in Jamaica supported by the Canadian NGO Canadian Jesuits International (CJI). The project, besides helping small farmers individually, has also been engaged in the formation of farmer’s cooperatives. The alterations, undertaken with the author’s permission, are largely a matter of omitting figures and tables which, useful in a report, are not strictly necessary for the readers of Promotio Iustitiae.
