It is a real challenge for the family to pay for the school fees, and due to lack of funds the girl spends most of her time at home which really affects her performance. The family stay in a rented permanent house with two rooms. They cook on a charcoal cooker, using electricity for lighting and buying water. Roffin's health is good. Her older sisters are Christine (b. 2002), Anne (b. 2001) and Clementine (b. 2000).
