What does receiving this money mean to you?
Starting a salon business for my daughter has been my biggest desire in life. This is due to the fact that, she has skills for this business but has never secured any place to work to earn her a living. My wish was to offer her a capital to start this work and this will going to be my family's reliable source of income. The remaining amount will help me to buy goats for rearing with hope that, they will multiple and when I sell them, I will get more profit.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Evening is the happiest part of my day since I always have ample time to rest from my busy day. When I wake up in the morning, I usually take my goats to graze, and when I am back home, I prepare my lunch meal and fetch water from the nearby water pan and this makes my day look tiresome.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Lack of a realible source of income for my family is the biggest hardship that I have ever faced in my life. I majorly depend on my husband who is doing casual work within the village and his income is always not enough to sustain our basic needs.
