What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I have faced in my life is not having my own house. I have been renting for a very long time which is really expensive and yet I also have to take care of my children since my husband is out of the picture because we are seperated.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in usually in the evenings when I get some money from my business and when my children are back from school.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means improving my life because I will be able to buy a plot of land and construct a good house since I am currently renting.
