“This business has enabled me to hire someone to harvest sand on my behalf, earning Kshs.16, 800 monthly (about $178 USD*) on top of my salary at UBUNTU Made. The business has also enabled me to buy a piece of land which is culturally vital, educate my daughter, pay for day care for Regina, and pay school fees for my younger brothers.
I am therefore grateful for the opportunity that I got at UBUNTU Made as it is the main contributor to my current status. Otherwise, I don’t know where I could be. Additionally, am also glad that I got a business through UBUNTU Made which is doing well and enabling me to help other people by way of employing and giving education to my siblings. I am certain that I wouldn’t have been able to leave the father of my second born daughter if UBUNTU Made had not presented an opportunity through employment in the organization. UBUNTU Made makes me feel like an empowered woman”.
That you are, Joyce.
*The average Kenyan salary is $76 monthly, according to this article.
