What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means I will be able to take care of the scholastic needs of my children, complete the construction of my house and buy household items. I have a number of children at a school going age but providing for them is such a big charllage the fact that I am just a subsistence farmer.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I feel happiest in the afternoon when my husband returns home. In most cases he comes back with food. This gives me the courage to stay in marriage.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is sickness. This does not allow me to work as expected and yet I have many children that need my attention. The consumption rate is high compared to the rate at which food is produced. In the end, food shortage which leaves me with nothing for my family to feed on.
