What do you plan to do with the cash transfer?
I will spend half of the transfers KES 55,000 on buying myself Livestock (Sheep and a cow). This will come in to help me get a source of food and income from future sale of animals and products (Milk). KES 40,000 will be used for buying iron sheets to construct a better house for myself. I will use the remaining KES 15,000 on food, clothing and household items.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Not having a reliable source of food for myself has been a challenge for me, my joy came when my elder son gave me some dry maize for food that lasted more than a month. This relieved me of reliance on borrowed food.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Being old and not able to engage in any agricultural activity or casual labour job for a living, I am having the challenge of getting money to buy food for myself. I am currently depending on the support from children and relatives to eat. Some of the donated food was washed washed away and destroyed by the flood water.
