What does receiving this money mean to you?
When I receive this money, I will buy livestock. In these are goats, chicken and cows for both raising and as oxen. I will also buy an ox-plough that will help in ploughing the fields. We are currently using hand hoes for this which affects our out puts but with an ox-plough, our outputs will go high of which we shall have enough food for both home consumption and selling. If thers is any balance, I will buy some beddings for adults and children because the ones we have apparently are not good.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the afternoon after my children have had a meal.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced in my household is lack of agricultural equipments for agriculture. And yet it is agriculture which is our source of survival.
