CHIEF Benjaman Samanea of Numbu community in North East Guadalcanal has encouraged women and girls of the community to save money whenever they can save.
He expressed this statement in a recent visit made by Mrs Gale Commence, president of the Women of the World’s Pacific Region, to the women of Numbu and Marava communities.
Samanea urged all women and girls of his community to save money as they are vulnerable to ‘several hazards’, for instance the pest African snails, climate change, cyclone and earthquake.
Samanea said with the introduction of this saving scheme he has seen with his own eyes and come to realise that women and girls of his community can also make money to save to secure the future of their families.
“This because in today’s world, money is the most important resource which gives strength and confidence in any situation which you are not fully prepared for it,” he said.
