While these massive order of pads has been quite an intense focus for Belekria, it hasn’t really stopped them from completing other smaller jobs. The women have been good at delegating roles, so one of them is responsible for mending jobs that come in. She will serve the customer and do the mending then get back into the pad factory line.
Another woman is in charge of keeping up with the lumber rolls. I'm not actually sure if I’ve mentioned these before, but a lovely lady from NZ has a physiotherapy practice here in Dili and she sells lumber rolls. She has been getting Belekria to sew them since Jan and tends to buy 5-10 a month. They have even been taking extra work home with them in order to stay on top of things, so I have been impressed by their dedication.
They are always making school uniform sales and adjustments, as well as whipping up a few extra items to try and sell at markets.
