Faleupolu's story

Faleupolu S.’s business is a taro plantation and a fruit farm. Faleupolu is now fifty-five and used to be very bad at counting money. This problem delayed her intention of wanting to start a small business. She has six children who were all raised and supported on her husband’s income of $16 a day from his work. Apart from his work, he also does fishing for extra earning for his children’s school fees. Two of their children have now graduated and are employed in Government Departments.

When Faleupolu actually joined our program, we took extra time to really teach her how to run a business and handle cash. She is now handling her business alone without any help, and is aiming for future improvement in their family business.
