People in the Lau Group have been reminded of the importance of resorting to virgin oil as their main source of income.
Last Friday, Minister for Women, Social Welfare and Poverty Alleviation Dr Jiko Luveni stressed at the talanoa session that virgin oil generates lots of income compared to dried copra and other sources of the income.
She said there were markets available, not only locally, but also internationally for virgin oil.
For the five islands in Totoya, only a man from Tovu Village is operating his virgin oil business.
Dr Luveni has promised that she would be sending two more coconut scrapping machines for the man in the next boat visiting the island after he made a request.
The poultry business for the women on the island, operating from Tovu Village will also get more assistance under the small business scheme.
