Agnes Aciro

Agnes Aciro is 25 years old and cares for 2 children of her own plus another 10 year old who was her brother-in-law’s child but because of a misfortune is now hers. Her husband struggles in search of contract jobs. So she is extraordinarily thankful to finally have some income she can contribute herself [from bead selling]. Before selling beads, Agnes sold fish. Her new earnings go to pay the rent, medical treatment, and food for the family. Like many of her fellow women, she hopes to one day move out of her single room makeshift house and into a suitable house with a plot of land.
