What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means I will be able to take care of the education needs of my children and roof the house that I started to build in Bukedea town.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the evening when I am talking to my husband. I feel remembered though he is out of home.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is taking care of the education needs of my children. I have many children who go to school but providing for them is a charllage. My husband is a soldier but his salary alone can not sustain the needs of the family. Some times I have had to sell off food in order to raise money that can support in proving scholastic needs. The effect of this usually is food shortage yet I can not run from it.
