My husband, , is not always at home as his job takes him out of the country for many months and I have to take care of the kids as well as the home front. Because of my job, I decided to employ a full-time housemaid who will help around the house and take care of the kids when they came back from school. It was one of my colleagues at work who introduced me to the Togolese woman who ran an agency that gave out maids. That was how I got to employ , a year-old girl, after screening about four of them. Samiat was the most competent of the ladies as she could speak passable English and also told me she had a child, so I just felt it was natural to employ her as she would know how to take care of children. I called my husband to tell him about the lady and he said since I was sure of her, I should go ahead and employ her.
