SEVEN accommodation and resource centres for women market vendors will be constructed in the Western Division with the UN bearing the full cost of each project.

The latest of such project was opened in Lautoka City with the UN Women's Australian National Committee giving $174,738 for the project.

UN Women representative Welder Mtisi said the agency's Market for Change initiative was being implemented in Fiji, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.

He said the project was based on sound evidence provided in a project piloted in four countries — Fiji, PNG, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu," he said.

"The program improves the economic and social lives of women market vendors."

He said UN Women had received $F17.2m from Australia to be used in Fiji, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
