Receiving this money means that I will be able to buy land. Iam currently depending on hired land for crop farming and is not costs effective since what I realise from it at the end of the planting season does not sustain the family needs. There is hunger due food shortage and this affects the household member's health. Once land owned I will be planting crops to increase on production for both consumption and sales. This will improve on my household standards of living.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest moments is always evening hours. Iam gloomy and depressed the whole day but only able to put a smile on my face while at kotoikit trading centre. I chat with friends who give me better encouraging words.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face is food shortage and this has resulted in hunger since my household members mostly eat ones a day. My family members fall some times sick has a result of poor feeding.
