What does receiving this money mean to you?
This money will set us up for life and bring about a paradigm shift in our lives in terms of being self sufficient in milk production. At the moment we buy 2 liters daily from the neighbour at KES 80,which is relatively expensive. It is much cheaper to produce than to purchase.Our intention is to live a normal life as circumstances allow. We settled recently and we have not acquired the dairy cow because we have been inadequate financially.It is against this backdrop that we intend to purchase a dairy cow worth KES 40000. We plan to use the rest of the money to purchase 2 water tanks.
What is the happiest part of your day?
We had been staying in the rental house in the nearby Siongiroi market. It was not the best place to live in because we shared amenities like toilets,our children also did not have enough playing ground. We are so elated to have a place we can call home, where our children can play freely and enjoy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Life has hit us hard, the cost of living has gone up. We aspire to live a better life than this. We are currently servicing a loan which we had taken to buy land and build our houses. It has taken alot of resources and we are left with little. We are not living the best live that we wanted.
