After spending two years attending homeownership classes and completing sweat equity in Lexington habitat’s homebuyer program, this couple is finally ready to move in.

With English still a bit shaky for the couple…we got some help translating from a friend.

“It’s been a long time, a long journey. I wanted to have my own house but it wasn’t my time and now I feel it’s my time. God has blessed me with a home,” Tengeneza Kashindi and Asende Wesesa said.

The two were surrounded by family and friends to celebrate and break in their new home.

He says he’s happy that he now has a lot of land and a fence for his backyard.
