What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money will mean that I will be able to buy a piece of land. I stay in my uncle's land and he can get it back anytime so buying 2 points of an acre with KES 40000 of the money will be great to me since it will give me the flexibility to do farming or any activity that I want. I plan to buy a dairy cow that I will take care of and sell the milk to Siongiroi Dairy and earn something to sustain me when the money that I get from my motorcycle taxi is less.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Having supportive relatives that ensure that I do not lack and being positive in whatever that I do has what has brought me happiness in the last 6 months.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The challenge that I am facing is financial constraints. I am an evictee of Mau, I lost all my belongings and had to come and be hosted by my uncle here. Starting afresh with no money or any source of money has been a challenge to me but I am picking up slowly.
