I'm a single mother of three and I have been struggling to make ends meet. I'm happy that Give Directly has come at the right time to help me pay school fees for my first born who is joining highschool. Annual school fees is about KES 45,000, and this is hard for me to raise given that I do manual jobs to earn a living. I will also buy a cow to supply the family with milk and also sell some to earn an income.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My son passed his primary school exams and will be joining highschool this week. I was so impressed and happy for his performance given that we have been struggling with life together.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Buying food for my family is very expressive. We consume maize worth KES 1000 every week. Its hard for me to raise that amount from casual jobs that I do since the jobs are inconsistent and pay less.
