What does receiving this money mean to you?
When I receive this money, I will first renovate my house so that it gets a new look. I will also buy bulls and an ox-plough that will help in ploughing the fields. We have been paying for this services but when we get our own, it will ease our work. We shall also hire it out so that we get extra income.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I wake up with no pain in any part of my body.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced is illness. I was operated recently and this has limited my input in most work at home.
