I am Samina, 58 years old, live in Beau Bassin and grown up in a big family. My parents have seven children and I can say that I had a good childhood. Even though I studied up to the Standard Six, I am happy that I had the chance to attend the following courses: sewing, housekeeping, permaculture, nutritionist, language and religious courses.

As soon as my courses have ended I met my husband and we decided to get married. After marriage I lived with my in-laws. My husband has four brothers and all of them got married. We all stayed in the same house and luckily we had never get faced any problems. I am very happy with my married life as I got a loving and understanding husband. I gave birth to three daughters and at present my elder daughter is 28 years old, my younger one is 24 years old and my youngest one is 22 years old. As we have three daughters, my husband’s salary is not enough for us. Therefore I decided to work as caregiver so as to be able to meet our daily expenses. I love my job and I am glad that my husband is not against it. I am ready to do any kind of job so as to attain my goal.
