The family lives in Zimbabwe. S is 35 years old and works in agriculture. His wife M is 27 years old and she also works in agriculture. They live with their 2 sons E, 11 years old, and D, 2 years old, and their daughter T, 9 years old. M and S both work for a total of 12 hours/week.
The family lives in a single-bedroom house, which they built with the help of family and friends, and is free of rent. They've been living here for the past 3 years. The house has running water and a toilet outside in their yard but no electricity.
The family has to buy all their food supplies, which cost them about 80% of their income. They use wood for cooking in the kitchen and safe drinking water is available in their yard. Every week, Mirinda spends 2 hours collecting water, 6 hours collecting wood, and 1 hour doing housework. Together with Satras, she also spends 6 hours a week attending to home agricultural activities.
The family hardly saves any money and the next big thing they plan on buying is food supplies. They hope that one day they will be able to fulfill their dream of buying blankets.
