What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this transfer means good education to my child. My last born is in secondary school but he has been in and out of school due to fees balance. I am planning to spend 60,000 Kenya shillings to clear all the arrears so that he can study with ease. I hope that he is going to pass and get a well-paid job so that he can support us in the future. Other, than I will spend the remaining amount to renovate the roof of my house which leaks during rainy season for us to be able to live comfortable life.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Morning is the happiest part of the day. It is at this particular time when I work comfortably because I am strong, than it in the evening when I am exhausted.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I work as a charcoal vendor in our village. This job earns me 2400 Kenya shillings in a month which is not enough to cater to all our basic needs such as education. This is the reason why I have failed to clear the school fees balance for my child. Therefore, the lack of a good source of income is my biggest challenge.
