What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means being self-reliable in my life. This is because am a housewife, my husband is the only breadwinner of this household. I am planning to spend $800 of my transfer to start a business of selling clothes, shoes, and cosmetics. This business will act as a source of income and am assured of getting a profit of $20 per day. For the remaining amount, I will buy 2 dairy ingenious cows to produce milk for commercial to generate an income. By having the two sources of income, I will no longer depend on my husband for everything in the house. I will be in a position of catering to the needs of the family and also paying school fees for my siblings who are still in school. This will boost my self-esteem.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning. This is because the time has to arouse, healthy and energetic enough to do my household chores. Unlike in the afternoon and evening house when I will be tired.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Financial instability is the biggest hardship I have ever faced in my life. This is because lam a housewife, I depend on my husband for survival. His salary can not cater to the needs of the family and also enable me to pay school fees for my siblings. Am real ashamed when my siblings drop out of school due to lack of school fees. This has stressed me for a long.
