What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means having a better life. I have been a single mother and unfortunately I was not lucky to give birth.This situations led to separation with my husband.Eventually I resorted to come home to seek refuge at my parents place, the situation worsened and I had to find peace in my relatives home. My uncle offered me a place to stay and I had to go an extra mile to earn a living. My casual jobs of ploughing earns me an average of KES 100 per day and its again seasonal. This transfers is an answered prayer to me. I intend to buy a piece of land worth KES. 45000 and KES.50,000 to build my house.
What is the happiest part of your day?
In the past 3 months,neighbours paid a visit to my home.I could not hide my joy since they brought plenty of food which has kept me for this long. This was a greater opportunity for me since I felt a sense of recognition in the community.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I am currently facing challenge of financial constraints. The casual jobs that I normally do only earn me an average of KES.100.This amount is not enough to cater for my basic needs.I am so desperate and I have been living in fear that the owner might want to evacuate me.
