Langaola's story

Langaola,33, is a mother of four and a wife of a seasonal agricultural worker. They live in their own home. Her husband is travelling at the moment, so it is only Langaola who is taking care of their kids for now. The two eldest attend primary school, while the two youngest are still under age and staying at home with Langaola. Langaola's business is a flea market, where she imports used goods from overseas, such as clothes, shoes, accessories, and other useful goods and also canned food, and sells it at the local market. It has been running for three years now. Her husband is helping her by exporting more goods when he is overseas. Apart from her husband's seasonal fruit picking, her flea market has been their main source of income for the past years. She runs her flea market twice during the week, and on every Saturday, for Saturday is the main shopping day for our people. Langaola makes really good money from her business. The only thing that affects her business is the freight. It is too expensive. She is applying for a loan to pay for her exported container freight at the wharf. Funding her loan will help her business a lot.
