What do you plan to do with the cash transfer?
To get my family out of the havoc that can be brought by floods in future, i will spend $230 on buying land to migrate my family to. Use $153 on house construction. School fees will take $310 while $156 will go into buying livestock (Sheep) and food for the family.
What is the happiest part of your day?
For the past 2 years, i was struggling to pay fees for my daughter who is a third year secondary school student. In January this year, my son got a good harvest from maize farming. He took the responsibility of schooling the girl. He paid all the fees giving her the opportunity to fully stay in school concentrating with her studies. This brought me a lot of relief and joy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest challenge is getting money to pay fees for my 1 secondary school child. My 2 acre farm under Maize plantation that i was depending on was swept away and destroyed by the floods. I am facing the challenge of getting food for my family of 4. At my old age, i am left to only depend on children and relatives for support as i am not in the position of doing casual labour. Following the recent floods which swept through my houses, i am intending to migrate my family to a safer place (not prone to floods) but the challenge is getting money to purchase land.
