Receiving this money means I will be able to go to hospital and get treatment.

What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the evening especially after I have had supper.

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.
