Madam Flomo said those who she can purchase her cooking ingredients from in the market are expensive and those who buying from her are unable because of the economic situation.
“The Market hard these days, if you buy the food materials expensive, you will not be able to make profit so how will we as parents get money from to pay our children school fees,” she noted.

“You can see plenty children just playing in the community because their parents are unable to send them to school just like me, it is not easy; the Government needs to do something about this money business,” she said.
Also was a single mother of two children Ruth Kollie who said she was unable to send their children to school due to the lack of cash.
