Villagers of Wema in the province of Navosa have been encouraged to practice skills learnt after undergoing training conducted through the Fiji Agricultural Partnerships Project (FAPP), in order to treat farming as a business.
Minister for Agriculture, Rural and Maritime Development Inia Seruiratu while visiting FAPP project sites in Navosa noted that farming is a business and a career and that for any business to grow, one must re-invest.
Seruiratu elaborated that the way forward now was to bring the market to their door steps and he urged the community to ensure a consistency in supply.
Training participant, 48-year-old Fulori Ratukaiwai, while sharing her sentiments said the training organized was enlightening.
FAPP is a Government project under the Ministry of Agriculture with financial assistance from the International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD) with an overall goal to reduce hardships in remote rural communities.
