What does receiving this money mean to you?
I married recently, and I have a small grads thatched house which is too small to accommodate my growing family. I plan to spend most of my transfers to build a decent two-roomed iron sheet house which will cost about KES 100,000 and the remaining KES 10,000 will be used to furnish the newly constructed house. This will enable us to usher our firstborn child into a decent comfortable house when she is born.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My wife is expecting our first baby and this has excited me so much. I am looking forward to being a dad in the next 4months.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I did my KCSE examination in the year 2014 and I am unable to further my studies due to financial constraints. I have always desired to be a teacher but I am unable to join a college school to pursue my teaching desires but I was lucky to be employed as a casual teachers at a nearby school where I earn KES 7,000 per month which is not paid regularly. This has subjected me not being financial independent.
