In a certain town, there lived a man and his wife and they were both working in the career fields of their choice. Then time came for them to start their family way and they were thus blessed with a child. So they decided to look for a house help who would look after the baby when the maternity leave expires.
The house-help became well acquainted in the family and she was now part of the family looking after the baby very well. It was not long before the family had a second born baby and she still continued looking after both children. The children loved the house-help very much since they were used to being with her and thus viewed her like their own mother.
Then one day, the wife lost her job in the wave of the retrenchment exercise.But since she was given her employment benefits, she started to start a business of selling second-hand clothes. But since she was new to the occupation, she was brokered by cunning traders and so she closed down business due to the loss that she incurred. But her husband assured that should not be worried about anything since he was still working and would thus be in a position to support the family. So she kept a low profile with hopes of getting something else to do that would spice up the family’s finances.
Then after sometime, their house-help decide it was time to move on with her life and as a devout Christian, there were plans for a wedding with her suitor. But it was hard for her to imagine leaving this family since she considered it as her own. But this family helped her in the wedding preparations and their two children were part of the maids.
So she went off to live who was her husband who worked in the bank as a data-entry clerk. But then he was transferred to another town and then promoted to a senior post. But for this other family, the husband lost his job and soon the benefits that he had been given got finished. He was unable to take his children to school who were now in high school and quite a lot of money was needed to take them through education.
Then their former house-help came visiting them and found them in deep financial woes and she first paid the school fees for the children. Then she helped the wife in starting a kiosk. She then went ahead and talked to her husband who helped the man of the house in securing a loan from the bank by being his guarantor. He was thus able to start a business and the family became on its feet again.
