What do you plan to do with the cash transfer?
I finally found a solution to my problem, I have been struggling to buy water from my neighbors. With this transfer, I will be able to put up a water point in my compound. The relief I have is immense because I will not have to borrow money just to be able to buy a can of water. $200 will be enough to carry out this project and I can not wait to see water flowing in my homestead. I will need to buy new Iron sheets to roof my kitchen and latrine, they are worn off and this makes it hard for me to use the facilities when it is raining. Once this is accomplished I can settle for raising livestock to increase my productivity on the farm.
What is the happiest part of your day?
That I am alive and healthy is enough for me. I get to work and eat, it gives my life meaning. I get to take care of my husband and my son it is a blessing to be alive.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I get so frustrated by the fact that I have to buy water yet water is in surplus in our village. A can goes for $0.1 and every day I use 5 cans. This is expensive for me since I am only a subsistence farmer.
