Salome Soqo, a 54-year-old from Burelevu in Ra said, the Divisional Craft Show was a good learning opportunity for the women of Rakiraki HART (Housing Assistance Relief Trust) home.

The 22 women of the HART home were among other women exhibiting their talents at the Divisional Craft Show at Shirley Park, Lautoka, last Wednesday.

“For the Rakiraki HART women we always look for a place to sell our handicraft so we are happy this is one way we do that and learn as well,” Ms Soqo said.

She said the group knew the benefits of using their talents for income-generation purposes.

“From our mat-weaving we earn $500 to $600 from the profits; we normally meet every Monday to do mat-weaving or masi-printing,” she said.

Ms Soqo said this was a good way to share information with other women.

“When we come here today (Wednesday) we get to share information because the women from Nadroga might know something that we don’t.

“The experience has helped me to learn more and earn more.”
