What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means I will be able to build an iron roofed house since grass is hard to find, buy a cow that can provide for me milk and also take care of future eventualities, buy a piece of land.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the evening when I know my business made profit.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is inadequacy of farm land. I have only a small piece of land which is not able to sustain the needs of my family. As such, I try all that I can to hire but this is not easy. Some times, I brew local alcohol in order to raise some money but this is not sustainable. It is common for me to use up capital based on the need. I am not able to save and buy land as it would be my wish.
