Sipuao Falelua

Posted by Julie Ah-Ken on

For 39 year old Sipuao Falelua of Samusu, she first attended the Nofotane Program with SVSG in 2017 where she was empowered with a business mind, not only to farm for subsistence living, but also as an income generating activity. 

Sipuao talked about how she used to carry 50 packets of cucumber while walking from one village to the next, to sell them.  Sipuao braved the rain and the sun for 2 years as a street vendor, until late 2019 when she had saved enough in her Bank Account with the Samoa Commercial Bank, to open a small shop infront of her house.  She continues to work the land, but she now has a secured market through her small shop, selling a variety of goods, including produce from her garden.
