What do you plan to do with the cash transfer?
For the longest time I have been supplementing crop farming with charcoal burning. Recently, the government restricted production of charcoal and it had a hit on my income at the same time crop farming is not reliable. I plan on using the transfers to diversify into livestock farming. I shall buy ten sheep and a cow which will ensure constant flow of income due to its disposable nature. I am thankful to Give direct,because my life will change for the betterment after the transfers.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am thankful to God for good health. For the past six months I have not had any ailment and this has enabled me to go about my daily chores comfortably. It gives me peace of mind and happiness.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Lack of a stable source of income is a challenge. I rely on farming to earn a living. A month ago, it rained heavily and as a result most of the crops were destroyed by floods. I am forced to look for alternative sources of income to put food on the table and adjusting to that is difficult.
