Mary Wangari has officially said goodbye to the days of struggling to put food on the table. She became a millionaire with Lotto the night of August 29th 2018.
The resident of Meru aged 42 had been playing Lotto for seven months before her big win.
The single mother of three children had been selling boiled eggs and porridge to sometimes ungrateful clients. Others thought the money they owed her after she served them was so little. She did not need to nag them to pay.
Mary relied on this to pay her rent every month, feed and clothe her entire family, plus pay school fees. She does not know how, but says her God made things work.
Even with her financial status, she was able to spare some money at least once a week to play Lotto.
She was motivated to always spare something to play Lotto because she knew someone somewhere needed help.
She also plans to buy a plot where she can build a small house.
Today she is an encouragement to the residents of Maua in Meru County; her win became the talk of town. She voluntarily explains the easy ways of playing Lotto to those who seek her help.
Mary plans to buy a plot. She says she is tired of paying rent and would rather have somewhere she calls her own.
She plans to build a small house so she can be left with some money to do business. This will relieve her of the daily struggles. This will make life easier for her son and two daughters.
Even with the win, Mary has not stopped playing Lotto. She wants to win some more, especially the KES100 Million jackpot.
Mary is thankful to Lotto for the opportunity to play and confirms that she won by just spending KES 50.
She urges many more Kenyans to join her in playing Lotto because, “even I didn’t know my day would come so soon”.
