According to her, the boys have been doing chores but adding a motivational part of it by offering remuneration will make them understand that money is earned.

"I also want them to realise that we can have our own eggs here at home without necessarily buying them from other farmers," she noted.

Jerotich added that, by so doing, she is trying to inculcate a saving culture in them as part of the agreement is that the cash earned will be sent to the bank.

Contract to be renewed after 3 years

Perhaps, the most interesting aspect of the contract is that it is subject to renewal after three years based on how they will have performed.

"In three years the one who is nine will be 12 and the other one will have turned nine, so even the terms will change," she continued.

Jerotich further revealed that the arrangement started a while back only that it had not been documented.

Apparently, she started them on probation and was paying KSh 20 (N70.29), which was increased by KSh 10 (N35.14) after the period elapsed.

"You should have seen how happy they were when they came to remind me that it was their pay day," she recalled.

The bigger picture, she says, is that the youngsters may not understand investments yet but the documents will one day be a source of reference for them.

Being that she is in HR, she also plans to write a Curriculum Vitae for each of them so that by the time they are going for the first interview they will not be green to the job market.

She hopes that more parents will emulate the same idea so that every family brings up a generation of responsible people.
