Mildred Bichanga: Kenyan Working as a Housekeeper in Qatar Builds Parents Ksh 1.7 House

Mildred Bichanga is a Kenyan national working as a housekeeper in Qatar where she moved to after completing high school.

She has been making headlines recently detailing how her job enabled her to build a house for her parents in just four months.

The 23-year-old noted that ahe commenced construction of the bungalow in the earlier months of this year and took a few months for it to be completed.

Here is Mildred’s story as told by WoK.

Mildred, a first born in a family of six children, grew up in a humble background and grew up with the desire to improve her parents’ lives.

However, she noted that she has faced a number of challenges including opposition from her step-family which did not want to see her family succeed.

“They do not want to see us successful. That is one reason that pushes me daily. I promised my mother that I would make life easier and better for her. It was more about her, it was for her,” she said.

Mildred attended a local school for her secondary school education, but after completing her Kenya Certificate of Secondary School Education (KCSE), she could not study further due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a result, she decided to move to Qatar where she worked as a housekeeper but she was still determined to achieve her dream.

From the salary that she earned while working abroad, Mildred saved some of it which she used to construct her parents a house worth Ksh 1.7 million.

“Despite the challenges I found in Qatar, I refused to give up whenever I remember the tough times at home. I had promised my mother, and I was planning to keep it,” she noted.

Mildred further encouraged her peers and young people in general to take care of their parents, especially when they are still alive.

“To make it in life, you need your parents’ blessings. What better way to do that than by making them happy? The blessings of parents go a long way,” she advised.
