What does receiving this money mean to you?
I do not own any animal and I desire to buy a cow. Receiving this money means that I will be able to get one for dairy. I plan to build a house with KES 30000 for my son who is now a grown-up because he sleeps in my neighbor's home and also fence my compound in over to restrain animals from straying into my farm and destroying crops.
What is the happiest part of your day?
We are happy that we have had sufficient rainfall for the last 8 months and with this, we have been able to plant and harvest more produce as compared to other years.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The current challenge that I am facing is food security. I farm a small piece of land that is not productive and on to it, our area does not receive enough rainfall that sustains any farming. With this, I resort to buying food to supplement the little that I harvest from my farm.
