Uikelotu's story

Meet Uikelotu. She is 78 years old, married with seven grown-up children. Uikelotu and her husband live together with their two youngest sons. Together they run a business of growing crops. They grow diverse types of crops such as taro, yams, cassava, etc. Her sons and husband take care of their plantation, while Uikelotu does the marketing of their crops.

They also send their crops overseas but due to the lock-down, they have to just sell locally. She is applying for a loan to plough their plantation and also hire men to help with the harvesting of their yams.
