Suzan stays with her Grandmother in Nabalanga village who is a peasant farmer. The family owns a small piece of land on which they grow food for home consumption only. Grandmother sometimes earns money through brick laying to cater for the big family needs though still not enough hence leaving most of the Suzan’s basic needs unsolved.
She is in good health.
Suzan was born underweight and a few months later was abandoned at her grandmother’s home by her mother claiming she had no financial means to care for the baby. Grandmother took up Suzan amidst an unstable income hoping for a better future as the child grows up but since then, family life has not been easy especially in meeting Suzan’s education requirements.
