Lau raises $22k for scheme

THE women of Lau raised about $22,000 last year to start a microfinance scheme for the women of the province this year.

Lau Soqosoqo Vakamarama president Adi Kakua Mara said the women were able to raise money that would help them move in the right direction.

"Last year the Lau Provincial Council wasn't able to meet. We usually try to meet just prior to the council meeting because that is the easiest way to transport the women to the capital," she said.

"The month that was prepared to hold the meeting, we decided to hold the Lau Women's Day which was a fundraising event where we raised the $22,000."

Adi Kakua said discussions on the microfinance scheme were continuing and they were trying to get officers trained to run the microfinance unit.
