What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I have faced in my life is lack of land for farming so I cannot cultivate enough crops to sustain me and my my family since I keep on renting small portions of land from other land owners in the village.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the late afternoon when I come back from the garden and rest, with my children around.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means helping me and my family improve our livelihoods because we plan on buying land and building a house when we are to get the cash transfers.
