Mary is a farmer, but does not have a large farm to cater to her family's needs. She has gone through the secondary education where she has reach for the fourth form.
Mary is married and a mother of five children. She has three girls and two boys. The husband is not employed which makes it more difficult to make their basic needs.
Mary has many challenges in getting school fees. She has four kids in secondary education and one in primary education. She does have the school and exam fees for the kids fourth form. She has been asked a total fee of 120,000 schillings ($1200) for the five kids which she cannot afford and hopes that the proceeds from the bags will help in meeting those needs. If she gets the proceeds she can start a small business and to be able to help out where possible for the family.
Mary doesn’t have the fees for the children and they are starting school in a week.
