Lae MP urges residents to give back to city

Lae MP Loujaya Kouza has called on residents to be involved in the development of the city.

She told 49 graduands of a Ginigoada-run financial literacy training at Ward Two council office, 7th St Lae, that it was time to give back.

The two-week training is the fourth module of training sponsored by City Pharmacy.

Kouza thanked the graduands on Monday, which included two ward councilors; Ward One Kakare Nomane and Ward Two Carol Yawing, and urged all of them to partner with God and help develop Lae.

"With your learning and with partnership with God, you will explode in Lae in its development," Kouza said.

She said if you were living in Lae and grew up in Lae, it was time to give back to the city.

"I don't care about Port Moresby and rest of Papua New Guinea, I care about Lae so let's work together and develop it.”

The training covered aspects of business awareness, family/finance budget, costing and pricing, cash book, bank reconciliation, business plan and community enterprise group.

Many graduating students shed tears with the MP as the training had opened doors to the realisation of becoming informal sector vendors. Moreover, young men and women will sweat for an honest living instead of getting involved in illegal activities.
