Receiving this money means I will be able to build an iron roofed house, buy some cows that can reproduce and take care of future evetualities and provide the education needs of my children.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the evening when I am with my children.
I feel they are a blessing to me because not everyone is able to have a child.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is lack of money to provide the education needs of my children.
I have many children who actually go to school but how to provide for them is a charllage.
I do casual labour to earn some money.
Some times I am forced to sell off food just to support them.
This in most cases has brought about food shortage in my household.
