Arieta's story

Alieta’s business specializes in weaving handbags. These handbags are made of a Samoan leaf called “laufala”. These handbags have different designs that she has made. For some of her bags, she uses tapa cloth to cover the outside of the bag before she wraps it up with plastic to make sure it doesn’t get wet when it rains.

Alieta works six days a week. She uses Saturday to deliver her bags to the market. Alieta lives in her small Samoan house and she looks forward to building a small Samoan house from her income.
