Fiji - Pacific Islands Rural and Agriculture Stimulus Facility (PIRAS) - July 2022
Jope Qaqanayavusabotitu inspects the breadfruit plants in his nursery. Jope is a 45 year old farmer from Rara Nalotawa Ba, now living on the farm he established in Marinitawa since 2016. He began farming pineapple in 2017 and now has one of the biggest farms in the area. Working with PIRAS and Rise Beyond the Reef project has helped him establish a nursery and an irrigated area for cash crop farming as well as purchase a biogas generator which produces enough organic fertiliser for his use by the community of farmers in the Marinitawa Cluster.
