Expected Income from each greenhouse: 360,000 Drams (for 2 seasons) -The paid amounts will be collected to finance more greenhouses to the rest of the families. - Once all families own their greenhouse, the project can be optionally extended to offer the same conditions (greenhouse + 2 trees) to those migrants if they decided to come back permenantly. - During the same period, the owners will be trained on how to save money (25-30% of their income) on building their own 2nd greenhouse to diversify the crop and increase their income. - At the end of the project, all greenhouses will be owned by the villagers thus creating a motivation for them to work hard.
