What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving these transfers means that I will be able to venture into animal farming especially goats because they are resistant to drought. This is something that I have always wanted to do but lack of money has made it impossible for me to start it. Investing in this project is also a way for me to store my money which will make me a profit when they start to multiply this way I can also help my spouse in taking care of some household responsibilities.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My child has been searching for a job for close to two years now since he graduated from college. Fortunately, towards the end of Feb, he got a job in a private school in town that pays well. I was very happy when I got the news because I knew that his family will start to live a good life unlike before.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
We have been struggling to provide basic needs for our family since my husband retired as a school teacher. Being that he is the breadwinner made things worse because there is no cash flow in the household. He has been using his savings to provide for us but things are not looking good in the future since there is no money coming in. Looking at him sometimes breaks my heart because I can see the struggle in her eyes. My current challenge is therefore the insufficient money in the family to meet the basic needs of our children.
