Malelega's story

24-year-old sole financial provider for her family Malelega is the only girl in a family of 6 six brothers. Since been a member of the South Pacific Business Development Program Malelega has helped fund for the development and running of the family plantation, which is the sole provider for the family’s livelihood. Malelega is at the market three times a week selling taro to earn money to pay back her loan with SPBD and also provide food and supplies to harvest the plantation. What she earns from selling the produce from their plantation is also enough to put aside for a rainy day. She earns 300 tala (US120) a week. Her loans have helped her improve the state of her family. She lives with her parents, brothers and their wives. She has applied for the next loan to purchase addtional planting materials for her taro plantation.
