Tabitha is a 28 year old primary school graduate living within Rongai town. She lives on a 1-acre farm with her husband’s family and their 4 year old daughter. The family’s semi-permanent (corrugated sheet metal walled) bungalow houses 5 adults and 2 children, which is connected to the electricity grid. Tabitha runs a small hair saloon, located a few meters from her home, and her husband is employed as bus driver on the Ongata Rongai-Nairobi route.
Tabitha took her loan from Water.org's partner SMEP for 32,700 KES ($384US) to buy the water tank pictured. She uses the tank for rainwater harvesting, as her compound is not connected to running water.
