No Fijian Government has ever provided us with so many opportunities to grow as much as the current Government has. These were the sentiments raised by Chan­dra Wati, 81, of Taganikula, Labasa, after she received her Micro and Small Business Grant (MSBG) on Monday at Labasa’s Subrail Park.

“Before there was no grant scheme like this to lift us, so there was nothing much that we could do,” Ms Wati said.

She is one of the many recipients of the $1000 grant presented by the Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Faiyaz Koya.

She also praised the Government for providing Fijians “unlimited” opportunities.

“People should decide wisely before voting this year because we have never had a government like this in the history of Fiji. We have been able to grow a lot under this Government.”

Meanwhile, another recipient, Arieta Batikona, 58, shared similar sentiments after she received her $1000 grant.

“I thank the Government of the day for doing so much for the people. I have been planning on expanding my farm and this grant will help me achieve that,” she said.

A total of 1937 recipients were assisted with the Micros and Small Business Grants at Subrail Park. Edited by Naisa Koroi
