Fifty-two-year old Nina Kumari thought everything was over for her when the hotel she was working for closed down almost 20 years ago.

But she was courageous enough not to sit around and sulk for too long.

Mrs Kumari got herself involved into livestock farming business and gave a helping hand to her husband who was a farmer.

Her livestock farm includes ducks, chickens, pigs and cows.

She either sells these along the roadside or takes orders from people where she dresses and delivers ducks and chickens upon request.

Ms Kumari was one of the recipients of Government’s Micro and Small Business Grants Initiative receiving $1000 from Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

She hopes to make a proper fence with the money received from the grant.

“Sometimes wild dogs come and eat some of the animals and that is one of the challenges I have to face,” she said.

Ms Kumari said she also hopes to get into honey production given the demand and the potential in the industry.
