Turning Obstacles Into Opportunities

OfaTuikolovatuOfa Tu’ikolovatu (pictured) is turning obstacles into opportunities for better business and the development of her country, Tonga.

Gio Recycling, a waste management business, and its Managing Director ‘Ofa Tu’ikolovatu are a visible part of Tonga’s business landscape. Ms Tu’ikolovatu is well known and respected in business and in the community for her efforts to reduce waste in Tonga. She describes herself as a scrap broker – she buys and sells scrap. Her aim is to clean up Tonga; providing employment, she says, is really a bonus.

But trading in Tonga is not always easy.
