Wells Fargo's Nili Sundown travels thousands of miles each year — via plane, boat, and even snowmobile — to ensure her customers have the financial resources they need to survive the wilderness of rural Alaska.
The summer season in Alaska offers a small window of time for rural communities to restock the supplies they need to survive the long, harsh winter ahead.
