Awendo, Migori, a woman married to an Okada rider has shared a lovely photo of the beautiful house she built after saving for nearly five years.
Maryann Anyango could not hide her joy as she explained how she had saved up the money to build the mud-walled house for her family.
The mother said she started with iron sheets for five years, but she could not begin the construction process immediately due to financial constraints.
"During the five years, I saved money, and we started building in December. I actually had a previous house, but I now wanted a big one that could accommodate me and my family, which is why I started saving for this new house," she said.

Anyango said the previous house is now her kitchen, and the family has ample space in the new house she has built.
"My husband works as a boda rider while I work in a small shop here at home, so if anything goes bad on his end, we always have something," she said.
