What does receiving this money mean to you?
I am a widow living with my son and his family. My first two daughters were married and they have been helping me to source for my basic needs. I am living together with my siblings in the same compound who poses livestock. Keeping livestock is a prestigious activities and regarded as a source of wealthy in my society. Therefore receiving this transfers will mark the start of owning livestock in my family . I will buy indegenous cattle and goats since they work best in a drought areas. My home area is a semi arid land but indegenous livestock does best especially goats. I believe they will multiply in large numbers and render me to have wealthy hence change my life.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My daughter visited me last month. She brought me 25 kilograms of rice.This brought joy and happiness to me because apart from maize flour I have, I can cook rice with beans.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I am living alone and sometimes lonely without some people to share Ideas. If my son goes to town with his family, I remain alone in the house. If I fell sick sometimes I dont have some one to care for me. Living on the same meal because of luck of money to buy other foods is also a challenge to me. I have been thinking of owning livestock but luck of money to purchase then is the greatest challenge I have so far.
