What do you plan to do with the cash transfer?
I have a family of three members. My husband is aged and he can not work anymore and I have healthy issues that hinders me from working. Ingot accident last year 2022 and had a fracture on my left and. This has made me helpless and unable to work. I still feel a lot of pain on the hand. I rely on my son who works at Mombasa as a casual laborer. He gives me $10 per month which caters for food only and it is not even enough. I take one meal per day and sometimes go without food. I will use $700 to buy two cows and two goats as an investment. Our climate is favourable for livestock keeping. This will help me infuture incase I do not have food. I will also use $300 to buy food. I need to take three meals per day so as to improve my healthy and that of my husband.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My husband is aged and he can no longer work and I also have healthy issues with my hand. This has forced us to rely on our son who works as a casual laborer at Mombasa. He sends us $10 in a month. This money does not sustain us for the month period thus most of the time I go without food. However on January 2023, my daughter who was married at Kilifi visited me with shopping. She brought enough food that lasted for two weeks. I felt happy to take three meals per day in those two weeks.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Last year 2022 I had a fracture on my left hand after filling dizziness and fell. I was served by a physiotherapist and got well. The problem is that I can not involve my self on hard activities and earn a living. During rainy season I also feel a lot of pain on my hand.
