TWENTY-two Papua New Guinean entrepreneurs will travel to Dubai in September after qualifying for an international leadership summit, thanks to network marketing company Pro-Ma Systems PNG Ltd.
Now in its 19th year in PNG, Pro-Ma Systems has given Papua New Guineans the chance to have a livelihood through its direct selling enterprise.
The journey would take them to some of the world’s famous and exciting tourist locations such as the Atlantis Palm Hotel and the Burj Al Arab, the Dancing Fountain and Mall of Dubai.
These 22 entrepreneurs have been involved in selling Pro-Ma products across the country before qualifiying to attend the summit.
The distributors are mostly part-time home-based business owners who earned by selling the company’s products that included cosmetics, jewelry, car care and health care items.
Pro Ma’s annual international leadership summit gives members, known as independent distributors, the opportunity to qualify for a first-class, luxurious trip to exotic destinations around the world.
One of the qualifiers Heather Yaninen, who has been participating for 10 years had travelled to places she had always dreamed of visiting.
“I have travelled to Las Vegas, New York, Hollywood, Disney World, Canada, Singapore, even to the Mexican Riviera on a luxurious cruise liner and many other destinations which was made possible through Pro-Ma,” she said.
She said the business has fulfilled her dreams of buying a house and investing, which would not have been possible otherwise.
The group from PNG will travel to Dubai with other business people from Australia and New Zealand.
