What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means I will be able to go to hospital and get treatment. I have been sick for so long but with no money to take care of medical bills. With the money that I will receive, I am hopping that my health will improve because I will then have the capacity to go to a better health facility.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the evening especially after I have had supper. This gives me the confidence that my day was a success. I can then plan for the next day
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is inadequacy of farm land. The only piece that I have is so small that it can not produce enough food that can sustain my family. This makes me to go and work elsewhere to get some food/ money to supplement on the little that I am able to harvest.
