This is Yusupha.
Yusupha is the mother of 4 children.
Yusupha’s husband passed away in 2015 from a stroke after this, she became a widow and her children became orphans.
Because there was now no sole breadwinner in the family, Yusupha struggled to provide food. Her daily income only carried the family through a day or two at most.
They lived in a tiny flat, with only two tiny rooms between them, and very poor living conditions.
Yusupha had to juggle taking care of her children, and trying to make a living from petty trade and selling fruit at the market stalls. Sometimes, she had to go without so that they could eat.
