Shirley Mery's story

Shirley is 31 years old, married, and has one child. She tells us that she helped her mom since she started selling fruit and that her mom paid her for helping her out. She did that until, after some time had passed, she bought herself a cart, which is where she currently works. Her dream is to have a stall to sell her fruits. She wants to buy melons, oranges, bananas, eggs, etc.
