Carol,24 years always looks forward to her turn to receive the merry go round contributions from her fellow Upendo Stars cohort(group) members who live in DeepSea slums in Kenya.
Meeting weekly the Upendo Stars, contribute each Ksh20(0.20 US dollars) to be given to one member as they cast a vote to determine the one who gets to receive the money.
With no steady income, Carol a casual worker and her cohort members, rely on the merry go round to enable them put food on the table for their young families, afford healthcare and pay for their housing.
YTEDC is supporting women like Carol to start informal savings activities that transform their lives.
The Stars project is supported by The Links,Inc.
