Nancy Aole

Nancy Aole is a 50 year old single mother of two and has two grandchildren. She resides in Faniufa Village and has been taking care of her children after her husband left her. Nancy has found it difficult to secure a job having only completed school until Year 10. In light of this, she focuses her time and energy towards subsistence farming and weaving bilums, both of which she is highly skilled. Through her bilum income she is able to pay for her rent, project fees for her younger son and grandson, food, bedding, clothing and customary obligations such as contributing towards funeral ceremonies and brideprice. Her vision is to build a house big enough to accommodate her family, as well as fencing materials for her garden.
