What does receiving this money mean to you?
We have always been ambitious, coming up with business ideas every day. We did not have the required capital to execute our plans. Receiving this money I will implement my business ideas. I had yearned to open a fish kiosk in my hometown. Currently, we do not have one in my area and this is the opportunity to start it. I will use my entire first transfer to accomplish that. My husband took an agricultural course in college and with the remaining transfers, I will start poultry farming. These two businesses running simultaneously will help me accumulate higher profits which I can save, buy food and take my children to school. I am happy to be enrolled today.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I was expecting last year and as per my doctor, May was my month to welcome my baby. My firstborn was a male child, I wanted a female child and I keep praying. I went ahead to buy female baby outfits. I thank God on the fifth of May I gave birth to a bouncing baby girl. This brought joy to my life after God answered my prayers.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Lack of money has always been a challenge to our family. My spouse works at a mining site as a supervisor, they can go for three months without payment, and him being the supervisor he can not strike. Imagine going for all those months and you have a family of two children to take care of. My tailoring job has fewer returns of 500 KES per week, this can not sustain my family of four with food and clothes. How I wish my spouse could get a stable working place where he will be getting his salary every month.
