What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship i have faced is lack of money to purchase farm land to cultivate crops.My household fully depends on farming but our efforts in farming have been frustrated because, farming season finds us with no land or money to hire land.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the afternoon.Seeing our children satisfied, happy and playing brings pride to me.This shows the fruits of my labour as a father in getting them a meal during the day.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means building an iron roof house and buying land for farming.
Part of this money will additionally help clear debts that i incurred during my wife's traditional marriage.
