Entrepreneurs Associates (EA) in its effort to assist the women street vendors across the state, organized a workshop for the women street vendors “The Guardians of our Local Economy” on August 29 at Phek town.

Around 300 women attended the day-long programme.

ADC, Phek and administrator of PCCI, Avelu Ruho encouraged the street vendors to practice honesty and fair business dealings. She exhorted them to be polite and practise the habit of offering clean and presentable products to gain customers. 

She also assured that the administration will try their best to educate citizens to buy from local vendors to facilitate their businesses.
