SME Mentor Program
Peuna has an SME mentor and support program tailored to each specific SME. We identify SME’s who share Peuna’s values and are prepared to work hard to achieve their goals and business objectives.
Peuna is a PNG owned and operated company. “Capacity building for local landowner groups is at the heart of Peuna’s business model”, stated Peuna Director, Mr Ken Vincin, a long-term PNG resident since the 1960s and well-known community development figure in Hagen and the Highlands. “Wherever we successfully secure work, we look to partner with local landowner groups and employ and train locals. Peuna currently has active partnerships in Hela and Central Province.” “In Tari, at the local hospital, we partnered with Oil Search Foundation to train local unskilled people to become kitchen hands and cooks, so that they can serve nutritious and safe meals to patients and staff. In Port Moresby, we are working with a local Boera based company, to build their business and catering capability, so that in the future they can independently deliver catering services to large and demanding clientele”.
