Talamoi's story

Talamoi is not only a tailor for people of all ages and sizes but also an elei designer and printer. She sews for both individuals and groups, like churches and businesses. Her main expenses, apart from her loan repayments, are for paint and designed boards for her prints. Although they are expensive she is not weakened, as she strongly believes that it is worth the effort and the time, especially as her prints are sometimes used on the clothes she sews. She earns three hundred tala a week from sewing and more if her elei prints are sold.
