A farmer’s desire to expand his farming business has pushed him to apply for the Recognized Seasonal Employment (RSE) Workers Scheme.

Ratusola Sokisoki, 37 of Burelevu, Sevou in Ra was among the many who turned up for the final round of medical tests as part of the selection criteria for the Recognised Seasonal Employment (RSE) Workers Scheme in New Zealand.

Mr Sokisoki has been a farmer for the past four years. He sells rootcrops and vegetables as his source of income.

“Life in the village is really hard nowadays and that is one of the reasons I have applied,” Mr Sokisoki said.

“My produces had not been growing well, so my plan is to get a place in the first 30 people so I can earn some good money and set up my own cattle farm and also increase the produces I plant on my farm.”

He currently owns four cattle.

Mr Sokisoki said he was overjoyed when he was called by the authority to attend the interview following his application for the scheme last November.

He has also urged unemployed youths in rural areas to make use of this initiative in order to earn some money to uplift their standard of living and also their villages.
