What does receiving this money mean to you?
I'm a widow and I have been struggling to raise my children alone. My husband died in the year 2010 and life has been difficult for me, given that I'm in a polygamous family. Give Directly money means that I will build my own house and increase the capital of my small business of vegetables vending. I'll also by a cow as a beef farming business given that we have plenty of feeding ground (near by forest) in our area. I'm very happy that I'll be getting this money.
What is the happiest part of your day?
When I heard that Give Directly were to enroll people in this village I was so happy that at last I can fullfil the dream of having my own house once I get this money.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I have been living in my brothers structure and I was dreaming of building my on house and Give Directly money has come at a right time. My children has been borrowing a place to sleep in the neighborhood but now I see hope.
