What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this means that I will be able to complete my iron-roofed house. I will plaster the wall and put cement on the floor to make it desent. The rains will not wash off my house wall and it can stay longer for generation.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of the day is afternoon especially after lunch. I relax under my shade trying to internalize ways of managing life. This has enable me get way forwad in life
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face is poverty. Iam an old woman and coupled with being a widow life is really hard to manage. I only survive on casual labour which is not reliable hence Iam unable to provide other basic needs in my family.
