Malaita man embarks on soap manufacturing using coconut oil

A Malaita local entrepreneur Peter Mana has embarked on manufacturing washing soap using coconut oil.

Mr Mana, who operates in Auki , the capital town of Malaita Province says he had decided to go into such business to show to others what they can do for themselves in terms of development.

Mana added that such development initiative is in line with the national government's bottom-up approach policy in economic development.

He says the initial difficulties he faced was having to spend his personal savings on buying machinery to crush and extract oil from coconut.

Mr Mana currently buys copra from local farmers in Malaita Province.
