"Kesho Pia Ni Siku" is a story of rebirth. It means “Tomorrow is Another Day.” Njeri Mereka is a smooth-talking, hymn-singing, 67 year old grandmother who runs her small boutique, Kanyoko Fabrics and Designs in Nairobi. She retells how she unintentionally started her business from the boot of her 1990 Toyota Corolla, survived a market fire, the social alienation of divorce, and the economic calamities of Kenya, to become independent as a business woman, and face another day.
