Kakamega Woman Builds Rental Houses After Working as a Househelp in Saudi Arabia

by admin

Linet Omusula, a determined woman from Kakamega, has defied the odds by purchasing two land parcels and constructing rental houses from her earnings as a househelp in Saudi Arabia.

After working in the Middle East for 10 years, Omusula has transformed her life and built wealth despite numerous challenges.

In an interview with TUKO.co.ke, Omusula shared her inspiring journey. She purchased the two pieces of land and began constructing rental units in 2020.

“I started with six rooms, the ones painted green and orange, which I built in 2020. Then the other one I started last year in June and completed this year September,” she explained.

Omusula’s hard work and dedication are evident in her achievements.

She last visited home in 2017 and plans to return permanently after building her own home.

Addressing misconceptions about money earned in Saudi Arabia, she stated, “I hear people say that the money from Saudi is ‘cursed,’ but I really disagree with that statement. With prayers, commitment, and discipline, one can achieve. Saudi has made a proud person. It has removed me from grass to grace.”

Her success is attributed to discipline and saving. Omusula admitted that working in Saudi Arabia comes with its challenges.

“I work in a family of 10, and the challenges are too much, but I thank God because he has helped me overcome them. The house is actually big, and I clean it, cook, iron, and do many other house chores. Sometimes, I am insulted, but I ignore because I know I have a bigger goal,” she shared.

Despite the difficulties, Omusula prefers her experience in Saudi Arabia over working as a househelp in Kenya. She believes that househelps can achieve their goals with determination and hard work.

“It is possible for a house help to achieve anything in this life. People have achieved their goals through this job,” she said.
