I have a very sensitive situation at hand. It is usually very difficult mixing relatives and money issues. I have a close relative who is married. The family is not well off financially. I used to assist her with some cash when I started earning, but it soon became a habit. She expected me to give her cash often, as if it was my responsibility. Nonetheless, I helped when I could. About a year ago, I started a business for her, stocked it, paid rent for six months to give her a sufficient grace period for it to pick. Basically, I catered for everything and the business was located in a busy bus stop so there is huge flow of customers. I did this because I knew that she would soon start paying school fees for her girl who is due to join secondary school this year. Basically, I wanted her to be on her feet before this year. Yesterday she called me crying and begging for school fees. Considering that she has a husband, who is a chang'aa type addict, I decided enough was enough and told her to ask her husband to look for school fees because it is his job, not mine. How would you deal with such a case, considering that it is a close relative, and her husband doesnt seem to step up and do his obligations? I have tried the best I can, and it has come to a time when I have to tell her to learn how to make her husband responsible, because I cant perform the responsibilities her husband should be doing.
