Empowering Growth: YES Grow Program Brings Essential Skills to Mt. Hagen Entrepreneurs

ABV volunteers Matt Stone and Liane Arno went to Mt. Hagen, Papua New Guinea, to present the YES Grow program, which helps small businesses owners develop essential skills for sustainable growth.

Matt and Liane have been volunteering across the Pacific with ABV since 2006.

The YES Grow program has also been delivered in Port Moresby, Jiwaka, and Lae, as you may have seen in our updates. Accompanied by Carol Nokop from the BSP team, Matt and Liane visited some of the participants' businesses to learn about their services, including Enoch Stevens' Puma Service Station and Delilah Gori’s craft market.

During their visits, Carol had a perm done with the lovely Maria Kulunga from Binzqe Hair Salon. They also stopped by Anton Pugu's general store before finishing their day at Sir Mara Haus for a session on funding sources with the program's participants.

They had the pleasure of meeting the Governor of the Western Highlands Province, Wai Rapa who came to see the participants.

Matt and Liane look forward to maintaining a close connection to the businesses as they implement the lessons learned.

YES Grow is a program delivered in partnership with BSP Financial Group Limited in PNG, Fiji and Samoa.
