Villagers enjoy cash flow

THE cash flow in the district of Wainunu has had multiple positive implications for the people in the area.

Tui Wainunu Ratu Orisi Baleitavea said farmers were receiving cash every week from selling dalo and yaqona.

"So the money they receive has circulated well in the district and we see this from the selling of food and sweets in the villages," he said.

"People know there is money in the villages so women cook and sell or the men make some vakalolo which is sold for an income.

"The dalo and yaqona businesses have improved much, especially with the markets coming right to the villages to buy."

Daria Village headman Jone Waqabilibili said if villagers in the district complained of no income, then it meant they were just lazy to farm.

"The buyers come every week and sometimes they even knock on our doors..." he said.
