Night markets to help women

Shayal Devi
Tuesday, March 18, 2014

NIGHT markets will now give Western Division women a chance to earn income.

Spearheaded by Westpac, the project will be a partnership between the bank and its partners.

The bank's sustainability manager, Eseta Nadakuitavuki, said the night markets were operating in Suva and they planned to extend the program to the West.

"For these projects, we are working closely with organisations that are already doing something for women," she said.

"We are now in the process of organising some night markets for people in the West.

"Last week, we held one at the FNPF Boulevard and we did this in conjunction with FNPF.

"We have set most of the dates for the markets and the next night market is scheduled to be held on May 1."

Mrs Nadakuitavuki said the markets were usually set for Thursdays because it was pay day for most people.
