We spent so much money buying milk, KES 1200 a month. We have planned with my husband that with the first transfer, we will buy a cow with KES 30,000. This will ease our spending on milk. We also plan to cement our main house because when it rains, the floor retains the water causing it to crack, and build a tin-roofed kitchen with the second amount because the one I have leaks.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Evening is the happiest part of my day because this is the time that I get to relax and listen to music, chat and share a meal with my family.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I have faced is financial constraints. I did not get to finish my college education because my family did not have money to pay school fees. I had to drop out and be a board teacher so that I can save for my school fees and also support my husband.
