Liliana's story

Liliana is a young mother of two who makes a living from making kiekie [an ornamental girdle worn by the women in Tonga] and selling it out at the local market. Her husband is her main helper, and they run their little business every day. He helps Liliana with preparing the materials for making the kiekie. Some of the materials need to be braided, and Liliana's husband attends to it.
