Self motivation, hard work and perseverance brought Treasure Laverua great success at a young age.

Mr Laverua was named the Best Young Farmer of the Year at the 2015 Central Division Agriculture Show yesterday in Syria Park, Nausori.

He said: “I didn’t look back after I dropped out in form 6 at Lomaivuna Secondary School but fully focused on farming till date.

“I am currently leasing a four hectare piece of land in Sector 2, Lomaiviti, Naitasiri.”

To date, he has a total of 0.8 hectare of ginger, 0.4 hectare of dalo and 0.8 hectare of cassava and also has 3900 broiler birds from one to six weeks old in stock.

Apart from farming, he is also part of a communal group engaging in the Solesolevaki in farming.

He said at times he also hires labours to work on his farm including the provision of poultry manure derived from his farm.

His future plan is basically to expand his farming business and then finally get married.
