Income Generation Opportunities Project
Funded by the European Union under the Social Mitigation Support Programme of 2010, this project aims to facilitate the access to rural credit to support on farm and off farm alternative income generation opportunities. It provides rural credit in the sugar cane belt areas in the Northern and Western Divisions of Fiji.
You are able to apply for an assessment if:
- You or a household member have had direct involvement or are involved in the sugar industry (i.e. Farmer, Cane Cutter, Lorry Driver, Mill Worker, Laborer);
- You are dependent on the income that you or an immediate family member generates from involvement in the sugar industry to meet your basic needs;
- You need assistance with supplementing your sugar industry income and are interested and committed to establishing a small business for which you require financing.
