This money will boost me alot .This is one of the best thing to ever happen in my lifetime. I have a perennial challenge of paying school fees for my children. There are a number of issues that we are facing and would like to accomplish. This money will set us on the course . I plan to use this money to pay school fees for my child who is in Chebunyo high school , we will spend approximately KES 20000 to clear all the outstanding fees and use the rest of the money to buy a dairy cow .
What is the happiest part of your day?
Our place is easily hit by the drought but recently we experience alot of rainfall which has assisted our crops to do better. Even our livestock have enough pastures and therefore produces enough milk for use. Rainfall is a blessing and we are greatful and happy that we will get a bumper harvest this season
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Food security is the biggest challenge here. Since the outbreak of lethal maize necrosis disease, maize productivity has been the issue of the past. We are left with no choice but to purchase from the nearby Siongiroi market. It is expensive for us since we are people of little means depending on casual jobs and peasant farming.
