Challenges Faced Wen Dealing With Clients.

By a female, 22-30 years old, in Nairobi/starehe, Kenya
Map of Challenges faced wen dealing with clients. It was on a Friday Morning, and members of the Community transformation organisation went to visit a client who has been sick for a long period of time. The client stays only with her two brothers who are schooling, and so she finds it difficult to cater for the family's basic needs. The week had gone without having anything to feel the stomach and when we visited the client, she was full of tears. Even the brothers had missed school for three days because of hunger. When we tried to analyse the situation, we found it more difficult it to deal with, since the client was so sick and needed a lot of cash for medical treatment. When the members thought of her joining the micro-finance group, we found it difficult since she couldn't move or stand for some time and most of her time she spent in bed. All her hopes died on the community transformers, which is a big challange since the organisation does not give out handouts. Read more.
