What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced is not being able to provide for my family.There has not been any maize harvest for the past seven years and since this is the food crop we depend on,it becomes difficult to feed my family without a stable source of income.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening.This is the time when my children are back from school and we all sit as a family to share a meal as well as the day's experiences
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money is a blessing to me.I have never received such a large amount of money and i have been praying that God opens a way so that i can be able to buy a cow to feed my children.This is an answered prayer
