The thought of this transfers brightens my future. This is for the simple reason that where I have been inadequate in terms of expanding my source of income for my family will be a realized dream.I live next to Chepalungu forest. It is against this backdrop that I want to take advantage of the resource because it will provide me with free pasture.I intend to purchase a dairy cow worth KES 35000 and the rest of the money will be used to do finishing for my house which has stalled for sometime now.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Our second-born son got admitted to a national school, Kericho High school. That were the highest moments for our family. We celebrated a lot because he beats all the odds and triumph. Earlier on he had been an average student but his sterling performance took us by surprise. We were so happy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I take care of two orphans and adding up my family members is a challenge fending up for them especially in paying school fees. The school calendar is now too short because it was disrupted by Covid 19 pandemic. Schools close for just a week, with schools, almost going on throughout I do not get enough time to look for fees. I have pending arrears for last term as we speak.
