'Asinate's story

'Asinate is 78 years old. She is married with four adult children and twenty grandchildren. 'Asinate and her husband run a carpentry business where they hire men to help their son with construction. The nature of their business is that they are hired by companies and even individuals to run construction and build houses. Currently, their eldest son helps them with the business. They are growing old but are still determined to make sure that the business is running smoothly and will keep on running.

Their business began with her husband and sons doing the carpentry work, but they kept saving money and were able to hire workers and still make more money. She is applying for a loan in order to buy carpentry equipment for the work. Her only dream is that the business will continue to run and her son will take care of it.
