She saved money for 10 years
Ugandan woman has been saving up money for the last 10 years to perform Hajj. She has saved up money by working in her smoked fish business, which is a modest setup.
Kasifah Nankumba, the 58-year-old Ugandan woman said she is so excited that she is afraid she might faint.
She used to save $1 every day
Kasifah started saving $1 a day from her modest business. Sometimes she was saving even $4 or $5 a day. Every time she saved $100, she used to deposit it to the Hajj agency. The entire process of saving money and depositing it to the Hajj agency took 10 years.
One fine morning she received a call
On 15 June, Kasifah received a phone call from the manager of the Hajj office who informed her that the money she had saved up over time was now finally enough for her to make the pilgrimage.
She said that she was too shocked to speak; the manager even stated her name numerous times to bring her out of the shock. The biggest dream of her life was about to come true.
