Equity is a bank which helps children and parents. when your mother or your father does not have money for buying food in the house for paying your school fees that is why there is an equity bank around the kibera. We also thank our president for telling people for building for us an equity bank even they will help for us money to build our houses and pay the rent. When you are very broke you go with your card in the equity bank you take the amount of money you want. If there is a thief coming to steal in the equity they are not able to steal any money from the bank because there are many security guard the equity bank that's why people can not broke in and steal their money. Equity is not a bank which people always steal there money is a bank which you enter in your card in the machine and you remove your money
