What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means that I will buy land mainly because I am not likely to inherit it from my parents given that I am a single parent. I need to have my property that I can settle my children in. I will spend about KES 100,000 on two points of land and the remaining amount on building a house.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I lost my casual job because heavy rains destroyed a bridge that we use to carry river sand to the market. In addition,the river sand became hard to find and so I have stayed out of work for the last six months. I am worried that this will soon lead to my family sleeping hungry if I cannot find a job.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Providing enough food for the household and school fees for my 5 children is a big challenge. I am raising them single handedly yet I rely on casual labour where I make about KES 300 per day.
