The entrepreneurs in Moa Wharf had their most recent training on “husband and wife relationships”. They said it was their favourite training topic so far.

Their businesses, which are mainly around fish drying and selling, are being disrupted by heavy rains and flooding as it becomes significantly more difficult to buy fish at the peak of the rainy season. As soon as the most recent meeting ended, the entrepreneurs rushed to the waterside to restock as a boat had just arrived from sea.

Moa Wharf is in an area that is prone to flooding at this time of year. Despite this, the entrepreneurs are still coping with their loan instalments and have continued depositing savings above the minimum amount of $0.50 a fortnight.
