“I came to Moresby with Island Mobile Hire Cars. (The owner) brought us as security for the company so he built us permanent houses and told us to stay here and take care of his land. Now I had been here for 7 years. The owner of Mobile Hire Cars told us to start some small business activities to cater for ourselves, while he will continue to provide us with basic food for the house.

My wife and I started a small business of cooking mumu kaukau and selling at the Manu market. I peel and cook the kaukau and my wife takes them to sell.
