I believe every woman should have financial independence, because money in the hands of a woman changes everything for her family and community.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Trade, Cooperatives, Small and Medium Enterprises, Manoa Kamikamica highlighted this at the launch of the Dua Pay App that will make payments easier for not only women-led Micro and Small Medium Enterprises but businesses in general.

The Dua Pay App is being trialed first with women entrepreneurs who traveled in from around Suva, Ba and as far off as Udu Point in Vanua Levu.

Kamikamica says the Dua Pay App can simply be downloaded from the Google Play Store enabling smart phones to accept Mastercard and Visa tap and go payments.

He says most importantly, the “Dua Pay” App goes beyond just functionality as it embodies the spirit of empowerment, inclusion and collaboration.

The Deputy Prime Minister says collectively, contactless payments have become increasingly important as it offers convenience to customers and helps streamline the payment process – if anything, this is a real game changer for MSMEs in enhancing the overall customer experience.

He encourages business owners to stay adaptable and responsive to the ever-evolving payment trend to remain competitive in the market.

Kamikamica says as we indulge more in the digital space, we also see an emergence of cyber criminals and scammers who try to gain unauthorised access to financial information, posing a threat to financial security.

He says by adopting a proactive stance and fostering a culture of cyber-awareness, we can collectively mitigate the risk of financial data breaches and thwart the ambitions of these scammers.
