What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means I will be able to build an iron roofed house. The one that I have is grass thatched which also leaks. The cost of changing grass is too high that I am not able to maintain it.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the noon time when I am listening to music over the radio. I feel relaxed.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is inadequacy of land for cultivation. What is available for me to cultivate is not enough to solve my cultivation needs. For this reason, food shortage is so common in my household and yet I can not help the situation.
