What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means I will be able to start up a business which can generate more income for me. Currently, I am working with a friend as an employee but I don't really feel comfortable with my status. There is no money. I also hope to buy house hold items for my home when I get this transfers.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the evening when I am seated with friends. I am able to get new ideas.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is providing for the family alone as a single parent. Treatment, feeding and all needs of a household are taken care of by me and yet the source of income is not clear. I happened to meet men who just impregnated me and disappeared.They don't care to know how I am fairing with the children. Life is a strugle for me.
