Seleman is married and the father of 6 children who still attend school. He lives in his own house with his family and doesn’t support anyone other than his family. His house has neither electricity nor piped water.

He’s engaged in a fish selling business and with this loan he plans to buy 50 kilograms of fish for resale and cooking oil. He faces the challenge of the lack of a refrigerator, since he narrates that his fish at times go bad, hence incurring some losses.

In the future he hopes to open a shop and further his children’s education.
