Pepe's story

Pepe is a married woman, with five school children, living in the Faleapuna village. She operates a flea market business, selling peas, coconuts used to make creams, Samoan cocoa to make tea, and other items like brooms, fine mats and bananas. She joined the SPBD program in June 2005 when she needed help for her business. Her husband is unemployed but helps Pepe run the business. To upgrade their way of living, pay the kids' school fees, and pay food expenses were the reasons Pepe decided to open a small business because before this they relied heavily on overseas remittance.
