Rosa Biginaua is 73-years-old but she is not retiring just yet.
The widow’s biggest motivation to keep going is her four grandchildren.
The Wainimakutu villager, of Namosi, lost her husband to a short illness in 2011.
Since then she has been caring for her grandchildren who are without their mother (died) and father (remarried).
Mrs Biginaua said her grandchildren were the most precious possession she had ever had. “I’ve lived with my grandchildren for the last six years.”
She has never thought of her grandchildren as a burden, she said.
She said she had given them all they had always wanted for schooling.
“I plant our food crops back in the village. My grandchildren harvest them for me and I come down early in the morning on Sundays to sell that here in Lami Town.”
“The main reason for me selling here on Sundays is to provide for my grandchildren’s needs whichever way possible,” she said.
“I’m always happy when they are with me. I always try to give them all the motherly love they’ve always missed ever since I started raising them,” she said.
Mrs Biginaua said money she earned from the sale of the farm produce were also for her grandchildren’s schooling needs which had eased slightly this year because of the Government’s help.
Mrs Biginaua sells cassava, lemons, guavas and bananas in Lami Town on Sundays.
