Currently I am not married and receiving this money will really boost as I plan myself to get married and be a family man. I live a favorable environment for animal keeping and as per now I own 3 sheep. The others which I look after belong to my father. I could like to add the number because I that is the only way for survival. I am an holder of diploma in business management and I have never been in any formal employment. I am very much happy with GiveDirectly's help because I have heard success stories of past recipients.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My joy and happiness is traced back to two months ago where my father's 2 goats gave birth to their young ones. It is my happiness because I am certain that through such I will get a lot of inheritance benefits from my father. I am much grateful for the responsibilities assigned to me and that is mainly to be in the look out of my father's assets.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Loneliness is currently affecting me. I live alone in my household and daily chores are so many. If I could have married my daily household chores burden could be less. Secondly I have been trying to do poultry farming but in a month ago all my chicken were eaten by a wild animal. I am disappointed with such happenings because the activity was really picking.
