What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means that I will spend for building iron-roofed house. I failed to complete my permanent house due to lack of money. The rains are washing off it's walls and is in danger of collapsing. Givedirectly transfers will enable me complete my house hence providing better accommodation. I will also manage to save some money spent on renovating agrass thatched house for providing other basic needs.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My favourite part of the day is evening hours. I remove part of my stress by egaging with friends at Opeduru centre. We share different experiences of life and is amazing.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face currently is my daughter is epileptic. She falls sick any time and I have spent too much money rescuing her life hence can not save for family development. This is avery reason I have failed to complete my iron-roofed house.
