What does receiving this money mean to you?
I was in an abusive marriage for twelve years before deciding to end the marriage and moved back to my parents home where I was given a quarter acre of a farm to live in and cultivate. For two years now I have been raising my four children single handendly. I plan to purchase my own piece of land and build a decent house to settle in with my four children. I plan to use KES 60000 to accomplish this.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The peace of mind I have gotten at my home after my brothers understood my challenge and welcomed me back home has brought me joy in the past 6 months.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Lack of capital and resources to sustain my family are the challenges am currently facing.I left all my belongings in my marital home after I separated with my husband two years ago.Starting life a fresh has been a struggle especially with no source of income and with 4 children.
