Fish market planned for vendors

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, February 18, 2014

FISH vendors in Labasa will soon operate their businesses from a well-structured temporary facility now that a good Samaritan has offered to invest in the $20,000 project.

Charan Jeath Singh Group of Companies owner, Charan Jeath Singh, yesterday said he was extending his helping hand to the vendors out of goodwill.

"Some vendors cover their stalls using tarpaulins and the existing stalls are not enough for everyone," he said

"During heavy rain, they get soaked and they also feel the direct heat of the sun during sunny days.

"I am not demanding payment from anyone nor am I going to receive anything from them after building the temporary shelter.

"It's just that I am trying to help the vendors out in giving them a proper shelter to sell their fish from."

Mr Singh said such an initiative was part of his efforts to give back to the community.

"Some of the vendors here are my customers and this is a little help I am offering them out of goodwill.

"This is just a temporary shelter and if the town council plans to build another fish market, I will then remove it."
