Selene De Los Angeles's story

Selene S. C. is a single mother with a two year old child.

Selene has been selling wicker furniture for four years. She usually buys from a man who makes the furniture. She later sells it to people she knows. She also receives additional income for child maintenance and from a job she has in the hospital.

Her sister used to be in this business, and she introduced Selene to the business.

Her loan will be used to buy two sets of chairs to sell.

Her dream is to give her son the necessary education by selling her merchandise. Also, she wishes to reinvest more every day in the business. She wants to do this so it will grow and so that she will be self sufficient in order to support herself and her son.
