What does receiving this money mean to you?
The walls of my house are weak and in the verge of collapsing. In addition to this, I do not have a kitchen and I am forced to prepare my Meal in my son's kitchen. I am planning to use KES 40,000 from the transfers to renovate my house and a further KES 30,000 to construct my own kitchen. Doing all this will give me the peace of mind I have always desired.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The right leg pains I always experience has denied me peace of mind for long. However, I feel relieved at night and this has bought joy in my because I always enjoy a nice sleep.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I have been suffering from prolonged leg pains and this has denied me peace for long. Walking has been a great challenge and this has affected my productivity in my small farm. During the day, the pain persists and I am forced to survive on some painkillers.
