What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced in my life is accessing daily meals without fail since the bad (unpredictable ) seasons coupled with the poor soils are greatly affecting my agricultural production and yet I have no steady income.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is waking up with a contract for casual labour. This is an assurance of earning that day and it relieves me of the stress of job search.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means complete individual development and achieving my personal dreams like building a personal house.
