Receiving this money will enable me to build an iron roofed house as well as buy a dairy cow which will on turn provide milk for my family consumption as well as some for sell to earn a little source of income
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is usually in the evening after i am done with my daily activities. This is the time i usually make calls to my wife to check on her and the kid and knowing that their day was well spent makes me happy
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Due to lack of employment, i have been forced to work as a casual labourer miles away from home in someone's farm. This has been a great challenge since i got married two months ago and my wish has always been to live under the same roof with my wife in order to avoid loneliness. I usually come home one weekend in a month which i feel it aint enough time to spend with my wife and child. I however hope things will change upon receiving this money since i plan to open a shop in the nearby shopping centre and operate in it myself.
