Villagers reaping rewards from farming

By SERAFINA SILAITOGA
Tuesday, July 08, 2014

Update: 4:04PM THE buying power in the district of Wainunu in Bua has improved compared to past years.

This is because farmers are supplying dalo to the export markets every week which has resulted in a good cash flow in the villages. 

Tui Wainunu Ratu Orisi Baleitavea said buyers visited the villages every week to buy dalo and yaqona.

"The farmers are receiving money every week and small businesses are beginning to appear in the villages because the people now have money  to buy," he said.

"It is much better now compared to the past years and we can at least now say that our money is in the land."
