What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means I will be able to build an iron roofed house and buy a motorcycle so that I can offer boda-boda services. With this, I believe I will be able to generate income and support my family.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the evening when I am at the centre seated with friends. We share ideas that build us as youths.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is lack of land for cultivation. The portion of land that my father gave me only accommodates a home compound and nothing more. I don't have money to buy more so what I do majorly to support my family is casual labour. Devide whatever little I am able to earn atleast to see to it that I provide for my household.
