What does receiving this money mean to you?
Givedirectly came just came when I was thinking of poultry keeping but had no capital to start. This money means that i will now be able to do large scale poultry keeping. This will help be my source of income for our daily upkeep.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My usual day involves waking up in the morning then handling the household chores. In the morning, i have not experience anything that would worry me unlike in the evening when i have had alot of challenges to face and been able to solve some and unable to tackle others. That is why i feel happy in the morning
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
This year, our area has been hit by drought and there had been hardly any food for our cows to feed on leading to low milk production. The cows have been our source of income because we sell milk at in tough times we can sell a cow so as to use the money to meet our needs . When
