Leatulai owns a piggery business in which she sells live pigs. Her piggery is divided into three different groups: the big ones, medium and the small ones. There are more than fifty pigs all together in Leatuali's piggery including the ten little pigs. Her husband and the kids help feed the animals in the morning and in the evening. She has no problem with her business. Nearly ten customers per week buy pigs for family faalavelave (village functions such as weddings, funerals, birthdays and special occasions). This is proof to her that her business project is growing.
