Young Agro sport project graduates

12 young women participants now leading to become entrepreneurs and rugby players after graduating from Agro sport project are grateful for the initiative as this has helped them to find their ways and built knowledge in business.

Lynda Niumatasere, who already owns a yaqona business says agro sport project has built her strong to accept criticisms and get motivated by it.

She says she has learnt how to do budgeting, financial business, working as a team member and managing her own business which she is now proud of.

Meanwhile, 21-year-old Veronica Lovobalavu of Cakaudrove, who owns a catering and sewing business known as Senikoko Enterprise says her business thinking came from her family as her family made a living through it.

However, she says the Agro-rugby project has built her knowledge more in business in terms of finance, budgeting and how to grow with her ideas.

She says the agro program has opened her mind to new ideas and given her the confidence to quit talking and start the doing as the program has taught her the importance of having a business plan and also a continuity plan which will ensure that her business also runs during the rainy and bad days.

Lovobalavu says this has also taught her the importance of knowing her business market and how to price her products accordingly, equipping the fundamentals of farming and the importance of the three stages of growth.

The Agro-Rugby project was initiated by the former Rugby player Seremaia Bai, who says the objective of the programme is to enhance young women players employability and food security during and life after rugby.

The project was funded by the public diplomacy grants of the US embassy.
