What do you plan to do with the cash transfer?
Receiving this money means investing on livestock. I'm planning to spend $500 to purchase 2 dairy cows and practice poultry farming. I will use the milk for consumption and sell the extra litres and the chickens when they multiple. This will generate income to my family and enable me educate my child with easy. With the remaining amount, I intend to renovate the walls of my house which are almost falling.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Our area has been affected by prolonged drought for almost 2 years. Luckily, end of last year, it rained and managed to harvest 270 kilograms of maize. The farm produce has ensured food security for my family of 3. I'm glad because it has brought a relief I have peace of mind the food can sustain for almost an year.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Unemployment is the biggest challenge I'm currently facing. I had to drop out of school in college due to school fees challenge. Since then life has never been the same. Securing a good job has not been easy, I rely on casual jobs such as charcoal burning. In a month can make around $ 50 which is not enough to cater for all the needs of my family of 3. My wife is also housewife since she finished school she has never been employed.
