Fali does not want to waste any working day of the week. From Monday to Friday, she spends and manages her time well. She goes out to fish and then sells her seafood on the roadside. The income of two hundred tala daily makes it possible for her to put her children in school, pay for family obligations, and repay her debts to SPBD.
