What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means a better education for my children. With my family of eight children I have not been able to pay for their school fees. Some of them had to differ their studies and I really felt demoralized about it. My income of KES150 per day which I earn out of the casual job I do,goes to buying food for the family. I am so delighted for this transfers and filled with hope that my children will finally resume to their studies. I intend to pay a debt of KES70000 in high school and use the remaining to purchase food.
What is the happiest part of your day?
It is now two months ago when my husband secured a job in a security company. He is now in Nakuru though he has not been paid, we are happy in the family. This is a great achievement in the family since we shall be able to afford food and other basic needs like school uniforms.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Currently my main challenge is paying for this school fees of my children. My three children are at home because of huge arrears of KES70,000 in secondary school. I do not have piece of mind because of all this burden. My happiness will be to see them beinng in school.
