Malelega's story

Malelega runs a flea market stall in Samoa’s main market. Her husband and five children remain in a small village far from town, where her husband works on crafting many of the goods that she sells in her flea market stall. Malelega sells the traditional Samoan handicrafts made by her husband and others both to locals and to tourists looking for souvenirs. A loan would help Malelega purchase raw materials for her husband’s crafts as well as purchase goods from others to resell at her flea market stall.
