Eda Supa message spreads to Nissan Island
NASFUND’s EDA SUPA voluntary superannuation product has seen a growing interest in the Autonomous region of Bougainville.
Recently the Buka branch was invited by the Bougainville Peace building program (BPBP) office to visit Nissan Island to carry out an awareness drive to cash crop farmers and small medium enterprises in the area.
The trip was organized to establish the Nissan District Peace and security committee and it was seen as an opportunity for the FUND to speak to council of elders, women groups, youth, and church and villager leaders from the 16 villages of Nissan Island.
Officer in charge of Nasfund Buka branch, Geita Goasa said that, the trip gave her the opportunity to identify individuals and groups to be part of the Eda Supa product to drive the objective of financially including people who wanted to save for the long term.
Mrs Goasa said that she was privileged to be part of the trip and thanked the BPBP team to have arranged her visitations and speak to more than 500 villagers and cash crop farmers.
“There about 2000 cocoa farmers, 800 beachdemer farmers and more than 800 sea weed famers on the Island which I will be visiting again to register members,” she said.
“It was good to see the interest shown by famers, they wanted a place that they could deposit their funds at the same time see it grow for the long term,” she said.
