JN creates product for farm workers in Ontario, Canada
Jamaican seasonal farm workers in Ontario, Canada, have the opportunity to receive discounts on mortgages, loans and on insurance products and services, as well as access more convenient means of sending money to friends and relatives in Jamaica through a programme designed by the Jamaica National Group.
The package is being offered through its subsidiaries JN Bank, JN Small Business Loans Limited, JN General Insurance Limited and JN Money Services Limited (JNMS).
The company is hosting a series of link-up sessions across several parishes to introduce the seasonal workers to the offer and to also provide them with financial advice and guidance. The next session is planned for the parish of Clarendon on Saturday, and will be staged at Clarendon College.
Horace Hines, general manager, JNMS, operators of the popular JN Money remittance brand, says the offer was designed to assist seasonal farm workers to access financial services in Jamaica so that they can acquire long-term benefits from the income earned overseas.
"They can begin to put aside the money to establish a business that can later generate long-term income, for example, or to even purchase a house in Jamaica," he said.
JN Money will offer seasonal farm workers the opportunity to send funds to Jamaica conveniently via its website www.jnmoneytransfer.com.
"We want to offer our customers not only a means to send money back home, but an opportunity to access financial services in Jamaica to achieve their financial independence," Hines said.
