NEW FARMERS ASSOCIATION FORMED IN NORTH MALAITA
A new farmer’s association was recently formed in North Malaita.
Called the Malto Grass Root Farmers Association, MGRFA, aims to assist rural farmers in the region.
SIBC’s North Malaita stringer John Andrew Kiri confirmed, members of the association took the initiative to help individual farmers adding, it is possible to access government funds through such formal initiatives.
“The Farmers Association members said forming an association as such is a good initiative in that the government would recognise them, unlike having each farmer working alone which no matter how long it would take for us to get government’s attention, but this won’t happen now because one person alone cannot make any difference.”
