“My life hasn’t been smooth and easy. As a child, I grew up missing out the lifestyle many of my age mates enjoyed and this status affected my personality and education. I ended up being a conductor to earn a living and provide for my family. It is a tough life and a rough job. I will invest in a taxi business for my husband so that he can be his own boss. I also plan to invest in an Agrovet that stocks in fertilisers, veterinary drugs and other livestock products in Malindi town. I thank Safaricom for celebrating me as a customer,” said Glenda Kombe Hare.
