I have several projects that I would like to implement using this money but my priority is building a more spacious house. The house is squeezed because it is just two tiny rooms whereas I have 6 children. To achieve this, we have organised ourselves as female members of the larger extended family to form a savings group. The budget for the two roomed house will cost around 40,000 KES.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Last week, I was visited by one of my in-laws and I was very happy because she bought clothes for my children. This has replaced the worn out ones.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
There is scarcity of food here at home because of limited income. With the rains becoming unreliable, I am forced to purchase food since no produce comes from my farm. I am a charcoal vendor and what I get is barely enough to buy food. An income of 200 KES is very little.
