What does receiving this money mean to you?
I have a house that I had started building but it stalled due to lack of money. It is actually a shell house that I will build to completion when I receive the GD transfers. This is going to be a great chance for me to also own a house after a long time of living in a house that my father gave me. I will also buy some bulls and an ox-plough to help in minimizing the hiring cost to plough the land.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning because its the time I wake up well and pray to thank God for the night.this usually done before I go to the garden.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced in my life is lack of money. This limits me from providing well for my household in terms of feeding, medical care and other necessary bills.
