LANDOWNERS of the bauxite mine in Bua will be given cattle to help them run small businesses.

Apart from the cattle, the management of Aurum Exploration (Fiji) Ltd plans to assist them with other avenues to start small businesses in the village.

Company executive Sang Lei said the landowners of Nawailevu Village needed financial support and such assistance would be of great help.

"We want to help them start businesses so they can support themselves. We will give them cattle and they can look after it and run it as a business," he said.

"They run it as a business and sell it to the butchery or people who need it for functions.

"Cattle now costs a lot of money and will be good income for the villagers."

Mr Lei said arrangements were being made over the handing over of the cattle to the landowners.

"We are supporting them through this kind of program. It is to ensure they run long-term businesses to support themselves financially."
