What does receiving this money mean to you?
I am a peasant farmer, I also do casual work to fend for my family. The biggest challenge I have been facing is paying school fees for my children,I struggle alot .I have sold three of my cows to cater for their school fees. I intend to use this money to pay for college fee and high school fees. This will cost me approximately USD 700. The rest of the money I will use to purchase a dairy cow since I sold the ones I had .
What is the happiest part of your day?
Normally I do casual work. A times coming by these jobs is hard ,when Iam lucky to get one it lightens my day and makes me happy because I know I will get something for my family. It's usually in the morning hours when I set for these jobs ,so my happiest part of the day is in the morning.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Honestly, the biggest challenge I have been facing is raising school fees. I have no means at all ,casual labour does not pay much ,it's just little to buy household goods but for the fee it is really a tall order.
