What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that i am faceing in my life is lack of money.
My house has a broken wall and usually when it is coming to rain, i have to take refuge else where and watch to see what happens. Usually after it has rained is when i get back it.
All this happens because I don't have money to make my house better.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening when i am done with a day's work, i have money and I can buy something for example chicken for my home.
So far i have been able to buy four (4)hens. This puts a smile on my face because to me, it is an achievement.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means i will be able to do business for example buying beans and maize, stock then sell at a later time when prices have risen, buying and selling of goats.
I also hope that i will be able to buy a cow and build a house for myself.
