"The biggest hardship I have faced in my life is reviving my business after being robbed at gun point and beaten mercilessly by robbers. This was 4 years ago(2016). This happened at my home at night in the presence of my husband and my last born son who was only 5 years at that time. My spouse and I sustained injuries. This has been torturing me psychologically. I have been living in fear that they might come back another day. Things have never been the same. I have been struggling to pay school fees for my children due to the economic set back."
