Petro Caribe’s Sales and Marketing Manager says ten filling stations around the country have been approved under the project, with five of them already in use at Marigot, San Sauveur, Fond St Jean, Portsmouth and Roseau.
The marketing manager indicated that another station was currently under construction at Scottshead, while another four would be erected in other fishing communities.
According to the Petro Caribe official, the facility assists the fishermen by providing them with fuel at a reasonable price, while also making available a rebate, with 50 cents given back to them for every gallon purchased.
“We have made a recommendation to all the cooperatives that they can use this 50 cents, back to the fisherman in terms of a pension fund, they can open social security pension so when they retire they can get benefits,” Pinard explained.
He said the suggestion had been taken up by some, while others were “giving bonuses at the end of the year” to their members.
