Receiving this money will mean that I will be able to clear my fee arrears. I am in my final year in school and rely on my husband to pay for my fees since I do not have a job right now. This is our major challenge since we still have children in school that require money for their fees and at the same time, I am in school.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Having a supportive husband who pays for my college education and at the same time take care of our home when I study has brought me joy because I will be able to complete school, get a job and assist him in providing for our children.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The current challenge that we face is the lack of a source of income. I do not have a job while my husband is a farmer who relies on selling crops that he farms to support us but the money that he gets is not enough to meet all of our needs.
