Mercy in the second born in the family of four sibling. Her mother died when she was three years old and she was left under the care of her father. Her father was forced to leave her and her sister in the care of their grandmother as he goes to look for work so that he can support his family.
They live in a semi-permanent mud house. They have a pit latrine owned by the family some few metres away from their main house. The family owns a farm which they use for farming. Currently they have ploughed their farm in preparation for the next planting season. They have also ploughed their kitchen garden but currently they have not planted vegetables because of the dry season. When at home Mercy helps by cleaning, washing clothes and general errands.
At school Mercy’s favourite subject is science. She also enjoys running, singing and playing with her friends. Mercy is a cheerful and disciplined girl.
