The man is the provider, and he should not abscond this duty otherwise he will destroy his marriage as soon as he does that. But also the woman must not sit back and wait for him to do everything. A wise woman builds her house.
This year's theme is 'investing in teenage girls'. And this focus is timely for the Kenyan girl, especially since economic challenges have forced parents to marry off their little daughters to get that elusive shilling to take care of unending financial responsibilities.
The woman, in her late 20s, was expecting a baby whom she had decided to keep despite friends advising her to get rid of. She said she did not want to involve the child’s father in the matter at all. How, as a single-mother-to-be, was she going to prepare for the child’s arrival and upkeep without getting into financial debt?
She saw her mother safely keeping money for a rainy day. It was little money but it meant a lot to her mother – and to her – as when the time came for its use, it did a lot of good. Thus she knows that once she spends this windfall on the cereals or whatever she buys, the money she had set aside for the same can go to another kitty. What else can you do with that amount of money?
