“The Honiara Central Market is the hub of market activities for farmers and resellers. Thousands of Honiara residents frequent the market daily for their grocery.
“For Fred Kake, he frequents the Honiara Central Market as a vendor. The Honiara Central Market becomes his office.
“I used to work for a logging camp at Aola”, Kake says.
“For 11 years, Kake’s life was spent at the logging camps. He says as an employee he did not earn much as he is earning now.
“Just two years into the water melon business, he was able to buy a vehicle, pay for his children’s school fees and support some of his extended family members.
“He came to realize that being a farmer is the best choice he made. He is now well known at the market for his big watermelons.”
