Landlord

By a female, 46-60 years old , in Busia, Kenya
Map of LANDLORD Investment on rental houses us what peopl think when they are given a chance to invest their money. This is becase the land lord is not tiresome thing bcase you only need to come at the end of the month to take rent from the rentess then disappear until end month again. But my Landlord thins were a little different. He never enjoyed the fact he had rental houses.rented out to full capacity. To him end month reminded him of losss because after he had received rent from the tenants he would pay the whole sum to bills and at times he would add some amount from his own pocket. For a long time he pondered on what to do with options being to increase the house which could have led to people flee from the houses. or ratio the electricity. and water and by doing this was not a solution because when he opened the taps or electricity the tenants will use them to the maximum. Aftr a long time he got the idea of placing electricity meters and the water meter on each house . This worked perfectly because they would pay for water. And now started enjoying his profits and gains of investing in the rentals. Read more.

Goods Things Don\t Just Come Easily

By a female, 22-30 years old, in Tororo & Kampala, Uganda
Map of  GOODS THINGS DON\T JUST COME EASILY There lived a very poor family in Tororo who had a small grass thatched hut without even grass to cover its roof, in that they didn't need a candle to light in the house, it was provided naturally ie. moon & whenever it could rain. and parents had to carry their kids on their shoulders and heads coz their house could get full with water to their waiste level. Apart from that, getting food and other basic needs was a tag of war coz even their woman's mother-in law would not allow her to farm in the family land. Luckily enough the man came to Kampala and got a well paying job and transfered to Kampala with all his family of and members in1991 and life went on well until when he died in 1997 considering that the wife was not working, life became difficult again and this time more worse than before. The kids had to stop schooling and became street kids, they would eat once a day or go to be bed on an empty stomach, were thrown out of their house, so they had sleep on peoples varandas. During this time, one of the big girls wa raped by thieves and got her pregnant unfortunately she died while giving birth to the baby. A friend to the late man gave the late man's wife 10,000 to pay for the kids school fees but instead she sent them back to Tororo to go for (U.P.E) b'se the money was little to pay school fees while she stayed behind to struggle with life. She used the 10000 to start a business of selling dry fish and thanks be to God she has managed to build a house take her kids to school. One finished though still looking for a job and another soon graduating in September 2011. All the success was all becoz of a friends help and her creativity of using the 10000 to start up a small business which later grew and paid school fees too. Read more.

The situation has further been complicated by the disintegration of the extended family. Traumatised by the death of parents, at times the orphans become antisocial.
