What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means acquiring an acre of farm land. I am owning currently a quarter an acre of farm land whichbis not providing the required quantity of food in order to sustain my household. This land when acquired will support in increasing productivity and household resilience in order to make my household more self sustaining.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest part of the day is at 4:00pm when I am done with my household chores. It's a resting time for me and that gives me joy that I can celebrate. Working throughout the day is very hectic and once I am done, I am happy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship in my daily life is inadequate food for the household. Because of the little farm land that I own, I can not produce enough food which makes me and my family members more vulnerable to diseases due to the weak immunity.
