TWO women from the Motu- Koitabu area and Central will be able to operate retail outlets in their villages, courtesy of Super Value Stores (SVS).
SVS rolled out its Supa V Stoa project earlier this year in partnership with Bank South Pacific.
Under this project, rural entrepreneurs not only own containers for general merchandised goods.
They will also become BSP agents, providing basic banking services right in the community.
For Mary Lou and Boio Bess Daro, they could now deliver banking and retail services in Pari and Boera villages.
Lou who opened her outlet yesterday, would be the fourth of 17 to receive Supa V Stoa in the Motu-Koitabu area under a K1 million funding arrangement by NCD Governor Powes Parkop.
