Fonofaavae F. is a woman of forty-six years of age. She’s married with six kids and all of them depend on her for survival. In order to earn her living, Fonofaavae owns a small business of “elei printing.” She’s being doing this for years and she says she is able to earn enough money so that she and her family can depend on it.
