Salelologa I Centre - Group 1's story

While Salelologa, the capital village of Savaii Island, is largely semi-urbanized, its outlying areas are still agricultural. The Salelologa I Centre is located in a largely agricultural area and the people in the community still subsist on farming and vegetable gardening. It is also their main source of income. The women who formed the Salelologa I Centre are determined to improve their present living conditions. With the help of small loans from SPBD they will be able to upgrade their farms and vegetable gardens and also expand into other income-generating activities including: sewing, elei printing, and pancake-making. These activities are a good way of augmenting their household income.
