Selestine is married. Her husband is a driver, and they live in their own house. She has two children who are still under her care. She has been a sand vendor for more than one year.
Selestine has had to make many sacrifices to satisfy the needs of her children, and thanks to her commitment they are all attending school. She says that she sells her products to house builders in areas of her town. Nowadays she can count on established customers she has gained thanks to her good service and to the good quality of her products. She is requesting a loan to buy more sand to supply to more customers.
She is grateful for the support she is receiving from Kiva and Yehu Microfinance.
