Grace Akinyi's story

I was born in Kolonde village in Rachuonyo sub-county in 1965 where I grew up. I went to school in the same village. Due to poverty, my parents could not take me to secondary school so I dropped out iin class seven. I was later married off to a man in Kochia and later moved to Homa-Bay town with my husband. My husband died in 1999 so am a widow. I am a widow who works hard to support my family as am the sole bread winner. My dream for the future is to expand my business and even start assembling my own stoves to maximize on the profits. After the death of my husband, I managed to continue with the business. Am still going on with the business. This explains my resilience in this business.
