What do you plan to do with the cash transfer?
Receiving this cash grant is an opportunity for me to buy a cow for milk production for my children, build a descent house to stay with my family.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I was able to harvest a sack of maize for food for my family. This brought me so much joy because I don't have to spend a lot of money buying food rather use it to get other needs of my family.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Farming large scale has always been my desire but I do not have enough money to do so. I am only able to plant maize as food for my family which I can feed on for some few Months to come.
