Fiji's interim government plans to supply every village in the country with two sewing machines.
They are on track with a recent donation of 500 electric machines from China.
Most of the 1,170 villages in Fiji have either a hand or treadle machine courtesy of donations from All China Women's Federation, the Indian government and the Latter Day saints.
This latest batch of machines will supply a further 200 villages leaving very few villages without machines.
