Margaret M

A mother of four, Margaret used to sell vegetables and to do part-time domestic work. When she joined Kipepeo, she felt instantly at home. She loves her work, the fellowship with her fellow card makers, and the fact that she is doing something worthwhile with her hands. 

Hopes for the future

Margaret yearns to be able to educate her children beyond high school so they can improve their lives and support her. Her eldest child is mentally handicapped and relies on her for everything. She plans to save enough money to eventually move out of Kibera and buy a farm up-country where she was born.
