Q3: What are the selection criteria for the girls?
A: My colleague goes over regularly to check the girls,
to see if they are from a good family and background i.e.

screen the girls .They then go through health screening
to check if they have any infectious illnesses like HIV,

their salary. Salary is of secondary priority but they
must also demonstrate basic ability to be able to

health problems such as weird sores or bumps (STDs),
yellowish eyes (liver problems)...
