What does receiving this money mean to you?
I have a house that's not yet built to completion. I will use the money sent in the first transfer to cement the floor, seal the walls because of the cold and paint the walls. With my second transfer, I will add a dairy cow that goes for 00 dollars to supplement milk production. This money therefore, will mean a lot to me.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest part of the day is in the morning because I wake up healthy and ready to start the day.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Old age. My wife and I stay with our two grandchildren since their parents work far away. We cannot till the land and provide for them because of our age. Getting equipment to be used to help us toll the land is also costly.
