The mum suffered from a disease that had symptoms similar to malaria when she was 12 that weakened her body and rendered her paralysed, as she explained to Afrimax English.

"I stopped walking, and doctors said they could not do anything to help me. I started crawling, and that has been my way of moving from one place to another for the last 12 years," the businesswoman said.

Despite not making enough money daily, Nakayima can pay school fees for her children.

She can also pay the family's rent so they may not be homeless.

She argues that having a small business is better than begging, as she vowed she could not ask for alms.
