Moira is from the village of Faleula, which is located along the coast of the island. This is one of the main reasons her business is fishing. She needs the loan to purchase more materials to upgrade her fishing business. She needs to purchase a new fishing boat to meet the high demand in this line of business. Moira sells her catch at the Fish Market in the heart of the capital of Upolu, and on less profitable days, she sells them to neighboring villagers.
