In 2017, the life of Eunice Otieng’ took a dramatic turn, leading her to a path she could never have imagined.
Facing an array of daunting challenges, she emerged victorious and transformed her life in ways she had never anticipated. Eunice’s incredible journey serves as an inspiration to all who encounter adversity.
Eunice’s troubles began when her husband left her for another woman.
As a devoted wife and mother, she was left not only heartbroken but also burdened with enormous loans she had taken out for her spouse while they were together.
To compound her struggles, she and her young daughter were evicted from their home due to unpaid rent arrears that had accumulated over several months. It was a dire situation that could have broken even the strongest of spirits.
However, Eunice was made of sterner stuff. Rather than succumbing to despair, she chose to tap into her inner strength and resilience.
With a meager salary from her nursing job and a mounting pile of debts, she decided to change her life from the ground up. She recognized that she had to find a way to secure a better future for herself and her daughter.
“I almost ran mad with my small salary. I had no option but to think about how to start life from scratch,” Eunice reflected.
She decided to embark on a bold venture as a boda boda rider.
She had a motorcycle, which she used to start her new job. During the day, while working as a nurse, she dedicated her free time to her newfound side hustle.
The journey was challenging, with Eunice carefully managing her finances, ensuring that her monthly nursing income was prioritized for loan repayments.
Her resilience and hard work paid off, and she managed to save Sh. 26,000, which would become the seed capital for her next venture.
Additionally, she had a piece of land that she had wisely acquired before her marriage.
On this land, she envisioned building her dream home and several rental houses. Her determination to provide her daughter with a better life fueled her drive.
“I decided that I will work hard for my baby to get the best. I think I was working with a lot of anger to change my life. That’s why I was able to finish the house,” Eunice proudly shared.
In an astonishing gesture, Eunice made her five-year-old daughter a landlady, gifting her one of the rental properties.
This act was not just about securing a better future for her child but also a symbolic act of wiping away the tears they shed when their former landlord locked them out of their home.
