Empowered by the unwavering support of the Australian Government, Alice, alongside 14 other outstanding finalists, embarked on a transformative 30-Day Business Launch Challenge facilitated by Pacifund. This empowering program guided participants through the entire spectrum of establishing their ventures, from conceptualization and validation to actualization. The comprehensive training included not only practical skills development but also personalized support and mentoring, propelling these budding entrepreneurs toward success.

Today marked a pivotal moment in their journey as participants, including Alice, presented their business ideas to a distinguished audience comprising representatives from business houses and banks at a formal event. This opportunity was a culmination of their dedication during the 'Biz Launch' program.

The #PNGAusPartnership, a testament to collaborative efforts, is set to enhance networking opportunities and fortify supply chains for Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises. Australia, proud to be part of this initiative, aims to support entrepreneurs like Alice through targeted training, mentoring, and fostering the growth of Papua New Guinea's business ecosystem.

For Alice Kolokolo, this experience has been transformative. "I feel like I have a purpose now - I’m not just a stay-at-home mum. I can be a businesswoman, and I'm just ready for it. I'm so eager to do it," she declares with newfound confidence. Her story exemplifies the power of support, training, and collaborative partnerships in unlocking the potential of individuals, fostering entrepreneurship, and contributing to the vibrant growth of local businesses."
