Receiving this money means a descent and a spacious furnished house for my family of nine. I'm planning to use the transfers from GiveDirectly to construct a three bedroom house for my family, one room for me and my husband and two rooms for our children. I can't wait feeling that joy of seeing my children desceit from borrowing some sleeping space from my neighbors. Furthermore, in my marriage life, I have never slept on a descent bed & matress. Therefore, am planning to use the balance to buy a 4ft by 6ft bed plus a matress. Doing this will make me a happy woman because I'll be at peace.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning. I've had many problems in my life but waking up in the morning alive and healthy makes me happy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Lack of a decent and spacious house for my family has been my biggest hardship. It has been difficult to sleep comfortably especially during the rainy seasons.
