What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means I will be able to buy oxen and an ox-plough to support my farming activity. This will solve the problem of late cultivation which has always led to low yields because of the unfavourable whether conditions that affect the crops. With this same money, I hope to buy cows that can reproduce and also provide milk for my family. I believe by taking milk, I will be healthier.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening. I am able to get knowledge on how best to manage my family .
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is lack of oxen. Since I don't have my own to support in farming, I am forced to wait until I can hire. Some times I wait so much that even when I plant, I am not able to get good yields hence food shortage.
