THROUGH a strong community network by the Duavata Community Policing and the Suva City Crime Free Association and the Suva City Council, a beggar was able to find a reliable source of income after being provided a space and selling place at the Suva Market.

Sushila Wati, 57,of Narere could not believe her ears when she was told by the Special Corporal Kimo Gu of the Suva Market Police Post that she had been given a market space by the Suva Market master and her products had been given by the Suva City Crime Free Association which consists of wheelbarrow boys.

The president of the Wheelbarrow Boys Association Jone Vakasa said members of the association collected $83 to buy two cases of pawpaw, one bag of okra and a bag of eggplant for Ms Wati to start her business.

Ms Wati, a mother of four, was thankful for the kind gesture shown by the association in starting her small business.
