What does receiving this money mean to you?
When I receive this money, I will buy a plot of land and build a commercial house for rent at the trading centre. This is because there are no good commercial houses around our area so this initiative will be a good income generating activity for our household.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the afternoon after garden work and we are seated as a family.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship Ivhave faced is lack of money to cater for our children's education, medical care and feeding.
