THREE women who were part of the Boat Masters License and Restricted Licence 6 Master Engineer Workshop, which ended on Friday, are also dreaming of operating their own boating businesses soon.

Learning and living with 59 male counterparts for the duration of the three-week workshop in the village of Navetau in Saqani, Cakaudrove did not deter the three women as they happily received their certificates at the end of the training.

Ms Diuca said she used to transport passengers without a licence not knowing that it was illegal.
