The founder of the organization APLADEM, Uzale Remay, has been nominated Digicel Entrepreneur of the Year 2014
Uzale Remay, founder of APLADEM, was awarded the prize of the 2014 Entrepreneur of the Year by the Digicel Foundation. The tradition of awarding those who survive Haiti's tough business climate to make successful businesses from the ground up began five years, when Remay's company, which she started in Jacmel, was 20 years old. She began her company after witnessing the waste of fruit produce in her community. She made contact with the Ministry of Agriculture and worked out a system that allowed for the formation of a fruit transformation process, which proved very profitable and resourceful.
