What does receiving this money mean to you?
I have a cow but it belongs to my cousin. I now want to buy my own dairy cow. I have build dairy structures but I have not been able to buy one due to lack of money. A good dairy cow will cost around 600 dollars. I also have school arrears which i intend to clear. I also have to give 10 percent to the church.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening. This is the time i return from work and get to relax and get to enjoy dinner with my family
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship has been financial constraints. I had 3 cows who died due to diseases. Since then i have not been able to buy others. This cows used to produce a good number of litres which we used to sell it and also for family use.
