What does receiving this money mean to you?
I will be receiving the transfers at a critical point in time when my first born child will be three months shy from finishing his primary education. The current school life has proven our inability to take the boy for further education for there is no term the children have spent it entirely in class without being sent home to collect school fees. My husband, who does casual jobs in town can only afford to send home 500KES every week for food leaving no coin to be saved for the children's education. It is without doubt that the 3000KES cash received every month will play a big role in educating the children.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I do table banking where I save 150 KES every week. In December, about five months ago, I was able to take home a total of 7 000KES from my savings. I spent the cash in preparations for the christmas and new year festivals which included buying new attires for my five children. It was one of the most adorable moments seeing my children dancing and singing praises while dressed on the new clothes.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I am eight month pregnant and my health condition is not good. I was advised to take good balanced diet to boost my immunity and blood levels for the welfare of the foetus but due to lack of money, I have not been able to adhere to the recommendations. I am more worried as I draw nearer to my expected date of birth.
