Seini's story

This is Seini. She is 57 years old, and she is a widow with only two grownup children. Both of her children have their own families. Her son resides overseas with his family, while Seini lives together with her daughter and her family.

Seini and her daughter run a canteen business, where they make light food such as burgers, sandwiches, samosas and also soft drinks. It has been five years since they started this business. Seini used to do tapa making, but her daughter stopped her from doing the tapa because she is getting old. Therefore they started their canteen business. Seini is the center chief in the SPBD loan centers, and she is a good role model to the centers. She is hoping to use her loan money to buy groceries for her canteen and also help with their house renovation.
