The Generator enabled Papamama (Pa) to bring Pareu Boards to life

22nd September 2021

Papamama Pokino (Pa) moved to Aotearoa New Zealand from Rarotonga in 2017.

After a period of personal challenges, he renews his interest in making Pareu Boards - wooden board to use for creating traditional clothing to earn money to support his wife and family.

The Generator with not only enabling him to purchase essential work materials, but introducing him to financial support, workshops, and the communities where he can sell his boards.

Pa says he is now selling boards faster than he can make them and may need to hire staff. 

Got an idea

ready to go?
