Yesterday, the association received contributions from the Solomon Islands leading tuna industry, SOLTUNA  and the popular PRO31 Shop.

The collective support received is intended to award competitions that will be happening at the Mere’s Market.

A token of $1,202.10 worth of  SOLTUNA  Products and $600 worth of  voucher cards from PRO31 Shop was received in support of  the event’s small competitions.

SIWIBA  Mere’s Market Chairlady, Melanie Poloso expressed her  deep gratitude towards the contributions.

“The Mere’s Market will always be an avenue to empower our  women economically and enhancing extra value towards our  women’s economic activities will certainly boost their capabilities and creativity in the economic sector,” Ms. Poloso said.

Ms. Poloso added that Mere’s Market helps encourage women in Solomon Islands to take pride in their potential to build customer relationship, business networking and income for their families.

Mere’s Market is proud to host its happy hour each day from 5 to 6 pm where prices will go down on discount rates for  selected products.

SIWIBA  and its members welcome the general public to be part of  the event.
