Receiving this money means education for my child. I'm planning to use the transfers from GiveDirectly to clear my child's college school fees. My child is undertaking a Diploma in Accounting and has been on and off from school due to lack of school fees. Sometimes he has been forced to miss some exams and retake some of them later after making some payments. With the transfer am expecting from GiveDirectly, I'm planning to clear all his pending fee balances so that he can study in peace.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the afternoon. During this time, I'm in the field looking at my livestock graze and this makes me happy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced in my life is inability to cater for my child's college fees. For some time now, I have been unable to raise the school fees which has seen him miss some exams.
