Kenya COVID-19

Mathare, Nairobi, Kenya
I am Macreen. The outbreak of Covid-19 has really affected my life. I used to operate a business of selling fish at my locality before the outbreak of Covid-19 but this is a different case now. This business always thrives well at night and due to curvey rules, I had to close it. Due to this, getting money to use in buying food has been a problem and I sometimes sleep hungry. I am planning to use my GD funds on food and to start a small business in my locality.

Margaret, Apr 11, 9:53 am
Mathare, Nairobi, Kenya
My name is Margaret, Covid 19 has rendered me jobless and the time restrictions by government has even made it worse. The cost of living is increasingly becoming unaffordable for us and we can’t wait for it to come to an end. Money received from GiveDirectly will help me to buy food in case there will be complete lockdown.
