What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means I will be able to build an iron roofed house, start up a business that can generate income. This will improve the standard of living in my household because service provision will have been made easier.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening when my family has had atleast a meal. It gives me the confidence that I was able to provide.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is inadequacy of farm land. The only piece that is available for cultivation is too small to accommodate the plan. I have had to just give up on other things which in the end has always resulted into food shortage. I have not had the opportunity to buy more land because I don't have the resources to do so.
