Receiving this money means I will be able to build an iron roofed house based on the fact that grass is so scarce these days.
I will also buy a piece of land that I can cultivate in order to increase food priductity in my household.
This will save me from the burden of buying food.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the evening when I am seated with other members of my family.
I feel relaxed when interacting with them.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is inadequacy of farm land.
I am not able to cultivate as much as I should because of limitations of space.
As such, I am forced to buy food because I can not produce my own.
I do casual labour to earn some money which I spend on food items and any other needs of my household.
