Emily is married to Protus Kisembe with whom they have one child. Emily’s main source of income is through cattle hawking.

This is an area that is male dominated but Emily has done the trade for three years and beaten the odds through hard work and the desire to succeed.
Emilly Kilui also farms sugarcane as her alternative source of income. “I am very grateful to Habitat for Humanity for enabling me acquire a good and decent house for my family. Surely, Habitat is fulfilling their mission of building houses, building hope,” said Emily.
