How I manage my money

I am a single mother of one. I lost my husband just 5 years into my marriage. Life has been a struggle for me, but I have managed it and today I have no complaints. 

I was a young widow with a 3 year old son when my husband passed away due to a heart attack. My parents were my rock throughout all this. To support myself and my son, I started taking tuitions in my neighbourhood. I would use my earning for my son’s education. I also have always loved gold. So I would put aside some money each month to save to buy myself jewellery.

My son has seen my struggle and has been a diligent student. He has completed his MBA in Finance and is working as an investment banker in a reputed bank. He takes good care of me and my struggle is all in the past now. He continues to indulge my love for gold.
