What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means I will be able to build an iron roofed house. The one that I sleep in leeks.
It is very inconviniencing when it rains especially at night because this involves standing and changing position here and there to avoid getting wet.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the evening when I am with my husband.
We are able to plan on how best we can develop our family.
It feels good to plan together with the husband.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is poverty.
I do not have money to satisfy the needs of my household. Some times my children have had to move to neighbouring homes that seem to be better in terms of food because they know they can find something to eat.
In a way, I can feel ashamed but with almost nothing to do because it is not that I don't want to provide for them. It is the condition at hand makes me behave the way I do.
