Isaia looks out for opportunities

Meet Isaia Posenai who is looking for an job opportunity to support his family. 

Mr. Posenai carries out small mechanical jobs for those who need his assistance around his area. 

He shared this with the Village Voice team yesterday. 

“I am not working but I do work for families as a mechanical engineer at their places, and that’s where I get money from,” the lad from the village of Vaitele Fou said.

Mr. Posenai also shared how hard life has been for him and his family.

“The only way we get money is from my younger sister’s job and any work I do for any family in terms of fixing their cars,” he said. 

“I don’t do work here in my house but I’d rather do it in their own houses so they can get to see it themselves because lately people don’t trust us with our work, so it’s better to do it there on their watch.”

Mr. Posenai says getting a steady job is what he dreams of so that he can provide for his family.

“It would be great to have an extra job for me, given the expensive cost of living at the moment,” he said. 

“It is really hard to earn a sustainable income from the work I do because if people don’t have work to be done, then surely I would not be able to earn anything, but an extra job will be useful to support my family.”

Mr. Posenai also commented on the expensive cost of living in Samoa.

“It is really expensive nowadays compared to the past five years, the work I do doesn’t really afford all the expenses within our house,” he said.

“There are so many obligations within families as well as church, so it is basically where all the money goes to and it is really hard to find jobs to provide for these things as well as supporting the family every day.”

Mr. Posenai is appreciative of any employment opportunity as long as it will help assist his family financially.

He can be contacted on mobile phone number +685 7755316.
