A single mother of two of Naqavata Settlement in Tailevu is currently selling chillies to try and put food on the table for her family.

52-year-old Isabel Singh says trying to find a source of income now is so hard.

Singh says she never gives up in trying to provide for her family.

She says she also receives social welfare assistance which is $120 a month but it is not enough to provide for them on a daily basis.

Singh says sometimes they cannot even buy essential basic items from supermarkets.

She says after the setting up of the Logani border, she has not been able to bring her produce and sell it in the Suva Market.

Singh says she has stopped planting other cash crops as it just goes to waste, and that was why she opted just to plant a lot of chilli trees as it is easy to sell.

Singh says she will be receiving her second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in the coming week and she encourages others in the Tailevu province to get vaccinated to ensure the Logani border is lifted.

She says she is also eagerly awaiting the arrival of the vaccines that will also allow her children to be vaccinated and be protected from the deadly virus.
