What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means completing construction work in my house. My house does not have a concrete floor, not plastered and does not have window frames and shutters. That will improve on my living conditions within our setting. I have been sleeping in a house that is not well ventilated which makes breathing difficult.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I wake up in good health. It is the good health that makes me happy because I am able to complete my day's activities without any challenge.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face is inability to own a reliable source of income which makes me very vulnerable. I am a housewife relying on the support from my spouse who is working with East African roofings. Some times I need money but he does not have cash at that material time.it makes life difficult hence te need to start up an Income generating activity to sustain my household.
