What does receiving this money mean to you?
Recieving this money means I will achieve my dream of building a good house and start a timber yard which I have always admired to do. I am an orphan and live with my brother who is a casual laborer at a timber yard near our home. We leave in a small compound that we got from our uncles and we always have to look for casual jobs with my brother in order to get something to eat.This has been a struggle from our side since we lost our parents. I plan to spend 400 dollars to build a new house, spend 50 dollars to start my timber yard business and spend the remaining to stock food for us.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happy during the day, since in the day time my health is in good condition that I can communicate well unlike at night when it's cold and I can struggle to talk.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I have been ailing for quite a longtime and being an orphan at home has really given me turf lessons in life, I have to struggle and look for casual jobs that sustain me and my brother. I even lost my voice out of the condition that I had, so I lost some communication with other people because I have to struggle to explain what I can and they don't understand me, I have been depending to my brother who is also a casual laborer.
