Senila operates a stall at the local flea market. She purchases jewelry and traditional wares from local Samoan handicraft artists and sells them at her stall.
The income from the flea market stall is critical to keeping current with her children’s school fees and purchasing their uniforms and school supplies. She is passionate about keeping high quality items in supply for both local customers and tourists.
Senila will use loan funds to purchase additional inventory for her stall.
