What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving the transfers from GiveDirectly means fulfillment of my dream of becoming an electrical engineer after school. Currently, I am pursuing my secondary school studies and I am planning to save the entire GiveDirectly transfers so that the money can sustain me once I join an institution of higher learning. Whenever my mother will be struggling in between, I will chip in and help in meeting our family's basic needs.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I love bulls a lot and recently bulls have been passing by our compound and seeing them makes me happy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Inability to pay my school fees on time has seen me miss a lot of classes and consequently affected my academic performance. This is the biggest challenge I am facing currently.
