Accommodation for Nadi women vendors

By LITIA VULAIDAUSIGA
Friday, September 05, 2014

Update: 11:55AM SLEEPING on pavements and in the open cold should now be a distant memory for rural vendors at the Nadi Municipal Market now that a new overnight facility was opened this morning.

Construction of the accommodation block began in April.

The project was jointly undertaken by the Nadi Town Council and the United Nations Womens market for change project (M4C), costing over $8000.

It is specifically for rural women vendors who travel from the hinterlands to sell their produce in Nadi.

The M4C Project has been a central feature of the UN Women Pacifics Women Economic Empowerment Program.
