ONLINE BAKING CLASSES
Baker cooks up success with his bakery and teaching programmes
Phill Wainiqolo has been riding high on the success of his bakery in his village as well as his online baking training programmes.
Originally from Sawana in Vanuabalavu, Mr Wainiqolo also books training invitations from families and communities around Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.
His training involves the making of a wood fired drum bakery and learning varieties of baking breads, buns, pizzas, cakes and pastries.
Mr Waqaniqolo said the training programme was important to him because it enables him to help single parents start their businesses and earn something for themselves and their families.
“I love helping my fellow Fijians with the knowledge I already have. There were some single parents whom I trained and now they are surviving with their business.” “Most of us Fijians have that ‘Rise and Fall’ ‘Duri Davo’ business mentality, but we have to believe that we can succeed in spite of the crisis that we are going through.”
The father of two has completed various trainings with families at Dalikoni Village in Vanuabalavu, families at Makoi in Suva, at Waimicia in Nalawa and at Natovi in Vanua Levu.
He is now scheduled for training at Taveuni, Kadavu and also at the western side of Viti Levu.
Mr Wainiqolo had launched an online baking course for Fijians living overseas. He said he has received positive feedback from clients in Australia.
Perry Rina, from New South Wales in Australia, said Mr Waniqolo, as her online tutor, had enabled her to start her bakery business at home.
“My special thanks to my online tutor who’s contributed so much in order to start my Home Bakery business,” she said.
“I am highly recommending him for anyone who wants to start his/ her bakery business. He’s even helping me where I can purchase my commercial bakery appliances.”
