Newlywed couple Ben Cyco and his content creator wife Wanjiru Njiru have opened up on how they manage their finances.
Through their podcast JoyRide, the couple says dating through their broke days has helped them grow.
“Wanjiru has interesting money habits, she rewards herself when she does something good and consoles herself when things go wrong.
When we were dating she used to shop at Mr. Price and at the time we were living on a budget. It made me see how soft you wanted your life to be. Mimi I used to get into Mr. Price when waiting for someone,” shared Ben
Wanjiru says she was surprised to learn how organized Ben is when it came to money matters.
“Ben is very diligent and very controlled with money.”
“When you get broke you get very anxious. Money is important as it gives you options, it’s only when you are broke that you don’t have options.
I remember the days we were broke we would get moody for nothing. Unaulizwa mbona ‘unaniangalia hivo’ out of the blues."
