What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I've faced in life of late is paying medication bills for my children who have been on and off the hospital. I'm just a house wife and I depend on my husband for everything.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest part of the day is in the afternoon when I'm eating together with my family members as some days we skip certain meals because we cannot afford the same everyday.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money to me means that a bright future lies ahead of me. I am therefore going to reach most of the items I could not access before.
