What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means that I can improve my livestock farming. I will spend the money from GiveDirectly on buying a dairy cow at about KES 40,000. I will then use about KES 40,000 on fencing and paddocking the land. I will buy some poles and barbed wire for this. This improvement will enable me to earn about KES 200 per day. The money will go a long way in providing for the children of my sister who left them to me when she passed on. These orphans are in secondary school, and it is a responsibility bestowed on me to educate them. This is the reason why I am investing in getting a stable daily source of income.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning. I wake up as early as 6 am. I then embark on household chores when I am still energetic for the day. I am happy at such a time, seeing my family getting ready with a good breakfast to strengthen them whole day. I am excited to have them take their first meal of the day.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship is financial constraint. I have a huge family of 5, among them are two orphans and my husband's mother in her old age. I am a caregiver yet I only rely on some few chicken for income. With about KES 50 per day from selling eggs, I am struggling to provide food for the household as well as school fees for the kids.
