Church Owns Poultry

Ba United Pentecostal Church members had their prayers answered when their brand new poultry shed was opened yesterday.

The $120,000-project was funded by the Government.

Fifty members of the church formed the Vueti Au Co-operative Ltd to run the farm at Waiwai, in Ba yesterday.

The church’s project manager, Penioni Kinilovo said the project was to financially assist the church’s members.

“We started off as a church group planting watermelons and cassava at Navitilevu in Rakiraki.

“Most of our members are young and are mostly seasonal sugar-cane cutters, part-time labourers to small scale farmers and mostly unemployed. Our objective is to encourage self-help and co-operation among the members,” Mr Kinilovo said.

Working in partnership with Future Farms Limited, trading as Rooster Poultry, the co-operative is looking at a productive partnership.
