Receiving this money means I will be able to get a good sleeping place.
I will build an iron roofed house that I can comfortably sleep in and if by any chance I have some balance, I will buy a motorcycle with which I can offer boda-boda services.
This will generate some income for me and make my life better.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the morning when I wake up healthy. I am able to work and get food for the day.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is lack of money to do the things I would love to do.
Currently, I am sick and I can not work at the same pase with the rest of the people.
I can not do garden work and yet that would be the ideal.
I am motorist offering boda-boda services but it is not rewarding enough because I am not able to satisfy my financial need.
The motorcycle that I am using is for someone else who also needs his share at the end of every week.
Life is not easy.
