Radville Farm to Engage 1,000 Gambians

Radville Gambia Limited is to engage 1,000 Gambians for harvesting of produce at its out-grower farm within the next weeks, according to the finance and operations manager of Radville, Sulayman Mboge.

Mboge, who is also the coordinator of the out-grower programme, said youth should grab the opportunity at Radville Farm to be employed, adding that about 3,000 people are already employed by the company making it “the best employer in West Coast Region”.

He stated that his company, established in 1986, is committed to complementing The Gambian government’s efforts at creating more job opportunities for Gambian youth.

He explained that in November 2012 the company started handling mango professionally through a support by the mango out-grower project of the government which ended in 2015 and later started the vegetable out-growers programmes.

According to him, the basic idea for the mango out-growers programme was for Radville farm to be training primary out-growers every year for five years; increase the income base of both the farmers of mango out-growers and the vegetable out growers; create employment, and save extra foreign currency for the country.

The mango out-growers project was funded by the Gambia Growth and Competitiveness Project (GGCP) through a World Bank grant to The Gambia government.
