What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means that I will buy cement for plastering my house. The floor of my house is dusty and it will attract some diseases like cough it it's not plastered. The balance of the money will be used for construction of the toilet since the current one is getting full.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Evening is my happiest part of the day. It's the time that everyone is at home and we like sharing the word of God at this time of the day.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest hardship is lack of money to educate my children. Though they are in a government school, I have to pay some money and purchase other requirements like books, uniform,etc.
