Aloema tends to her vegetable garden everyday. It is a hobby that has now turned into a money making activity to earn extra cash to supplement her husband’s earnings. Now that her three children are in school, money is always needed not only for their lunches but also other fundraising activities in school. Aloema earns $200 profit a week from the sale of her vegetables to the local villagers as well as the customers she has when she takes her produce to market.

Aloema is requesting $800 to purchase fertilizer, fagavao, cement, timber, sand and an iron roof.
