Telesia's story

Telesia S. is a 50 year old mother of three children. One of her daughters is a lawyer. Telesia is looking after her grandson and uses most of her time at home to grow and plant flowers beside her house. She is one of the oldest members of the Aleisa borrowing center and this is her sixth loan. When it’s too hot in the daytime, Telesia will do her elei printing. She sells her plants and flowers from home, and she also delivers her lavalava (a Samoan sarong) to the village shops.
