Matavola is newspaper’s sales agent of the month

Sunday, July 24, 2016

FOR 32 years, Sakiusa Matavola has sold The Fiji Times newspaper around Suva.

He is a familiar face at the Suva bus stand every morning, greeting early risers with the day’s paper.

He has worked the hard yards and pretty much grew up selling The Fiji Times (he started when he was 18 years old).

Today he is one of the biggest sellers for the company — averaging 1000 to 2000 newspaper sales a day.

For this he has been recognised as The Fiji Times agent for the month. The award is part of an initiative to reward agents for their tireless efforts.

“I first started selling The Fiji Times, by holding it in my arms and walking around Suva to clients,” the 50-year-old said.

“I walked the breadth of this city, even right up to Walu Bay, just so loyal clients can have their newspaper. It was hard then, but I persevered.”

The man with ni-Vanuatu roots, who has maternal links in Rewa, said he wouldn’t change his job for anything else.

“I have seen the rewards of hard work. Despite the low pay at the time, I refused to give up.”

Mr Matavola said he used to sell the papers at 10c each during the 1980s and got paid $3 a day.

“Today I get way more than that. TheFiji Times has looked after me and my family well for the past 30 years. I wouldn’t change this job for anything else.”Fijitimes
