By Aaron Humes: The Social Investment Fund (SIF) has rehabilitated the Corozal Town Market Annex located at 1st St South & 6th Avenue, which was inaugurated this afternoon.Sif

The total cost of the project, including repaving both streets, is some 689 thousand 300 dollars and thirty cents. The money was loaned by the World Bank under the Belize Municipal Development Project (BMDP) with counter-part funding of three-per cent by the Corozal Town Council.

The market facility occupies over 220 square meters. The rebuilt annex will create opportunities for vendors to foster and enhance their livelihoods, serve as a central meeting point for the people of Corozal and surrounding communities to exchange goods, produce, ideas, interact and create meaningful opportunities in the pursuit of continued socio-economic development.

Vendors and shoppers will also enjoy the convenience of 15 market stalls due to the ambiance of a more spacious, pleasant and safer environment for all.

In addition, the completion of the streets infrastructure project will also contribute to the transformation of the market for a healthier environment and enhancement of the aesthetics of the market.
