image Written By : SHRATIKA NAIDU. Jone Drodrolagi has been selling yaqona for seven years to pay for his children’s education.
Originally from Wailevu West, in Savusavu, Mr Drodrolagi, 47, a father of seven sells his yaqona to sell at the Labasa Market daily.
“I left my village with my family in 2004 and since then I have been renting a flat in Wailevu, Labasa,” Mr Drodrolagi said.
He said he moved to Labasa because he wanted his children to get a proper education.
“My wife, Luisa Tagiteci and I work hard to invest money for our children’s second school term fees,” he said.
He has two children attending secondary school, one in primary while his other children were working and doing further studies at tertiary institutes in Labasa.
“As a father, I feel that it is my responsibility to help my children get educated and find a good job,” Mr Drodrolagi said.
