Grace lives with two daughters, her nephew, and two grandchildren at her home. Both of her daughters are tailors, and one of them is employed at the town centre in a tailoring store while the other works from home.
Grace farms chicken, sheep, cow, and crops on her farm. She also harvests fruits including pears, plums, and tree tomatoes, which she sometimes sells to people who want to sell them in the market centre.
Grace’s sheep was pregnant at the time it was gifted, and she is thankful that her sheep is almost giving birth to its second calf in a few months.
She is thankful for the trainings she received during the h.o.w? Ministry Arise Women's Conferences about quality control, having several incomes, hygiene, and acquiring new skills. Grace is thankful for the impact h.o.w? Ministry has had in their lives and says she feels empowered.
She has been able to buy a gas stove, which she uses to prepare her breakfast and quick meals. She has also put a floor in her house for better hygiene. She attributes the improvements in hygiene, nutrition, and taking medications to her positive living and health.
Grace was a niece to a deceased widow, Veronicah. She took in and cared for two of Veronicah’s granddaughters after she passed away in 2013. We are thankful to Grace for adopting the girls.
Grace was divorced in 1996 when her husband took in a second wife. She returned to her father’s land and was given a small place to settle in.
She is among the fastest ladies who make jewelry and often helps the other women when they learn new styles. With the money she earns she pays school fees and buys food.
Grace and her family are doing well. They have been busy planting the third and last season this year of crops in the farm. Grace and her daughters are healthy, and she is excited that her grandchild has started walking. Grace is also hopeful that her girls will put up a tailoring business and start earning from it.
