Many talented Papua New Guineans who make their living through wood carvings, art designs, paintings, bilums and other crafts have received little attention from the government to market their products.
Many of them sell their products under the shades and makeshift shelters.
One such talent is appealing to city authorities and the Government to build a proper house for them to sell their work.
Nikita Borari is from Oro province WHO’sells her mother’s crafts in Port Moresby.
Unlike many young girls, Nikita spares weekends out, making ends meet by selling tapa products.
She sells a variety of products, ranging from bags, baskets, printed laplaps, necklaces, armbands and others.
But like many other people who venture into such craft making business, they have one complain that have yet to be addressed by responsible authorities.
Their concern is for a proper house and market to sell their crafts.
With the Government’s initiative to boost the Small to medium enterprises in the country, Nikita said building a formal market to promote PNG made products will help many local craft makers.
