FARMERS in the Northern Division looking to buy affordable tools can breathe a sigh of relief now that a Labasa man has opened up his tool-making business.

Sami, a former Motibhai Company Limited employee, decided to open up business to help farmers who don't have enough money with affordable and quality tools.

"I just started my business early this year with the help of my families and friends," said the Siberia father of three.

"The materials I use are very reliable and of high quality. I buy metal from FSC and some other hardware shops in town. Making tools was one of my passions ever since I was growing up.

"The skills to make tools developed within as I grew older and I assured myself that I will run my own tool business one day. Now that I have, I am relieved because I know I have fulfilled one of my dreams."

Mr Sami said farmers from around Labasa hadcontacted him to order tools.

"I make farming spades, forks and knives. The prices are affordable and they range from $25 to $35.
