Lucy was born in August 1983. Neither of her parents are educated. Her father, who had four wives, died in 1998. Lucy’s mother was left to support her eight children alone. With income earned from a small-scale farm and with help from an uncle, Lucy’s mother was able to educate her four daughters through high school. One of Lucy’s brothers paid for her post-secondary education and she earned a certificate in Office Operations in 2004. In January 2005, Lucy began working for MGEF in Kajiado as an administrative assistant. She has been serving as the office’s managing director since 2007. As part of MGEF’s capacity building effort, Lucy enrolled at Premese College in 2008 in a “distance learning” program. In 2009, she graduated with a Diploma in Community Development and Project Management.
