Tu'uta's story

Tu'uta is 46 years old and is living together in her own home with her five children and her husband, who is laying in bed after a stroke. Tu'uta is the only one responsible for looking for ways for her family to survive.

Tu'uta runs a fishing business and sells her catch to bring in income for the family. She sells the seafood from the roadside of her village and sometimes she takes it to the market. She earns weekly from her business, and it helps her family with the living expenses as well as helping pay back her loan.

She applied for a new loan in order to buy new fishing net for her fishing, because currently she pays her brother to do the fishing for her business.
