What do you plan to do with the cash transfer?
Am planning on buying on two cows which each goes for about $344 and thus am planning on spending about $886 in total.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Nothing has made me happy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Hunger has been my greatest challenge. Getting food to feed my grand children is so disturbing as we can sometimes finish off a day without a full meal. Water also oozes from the ground and makes my house soggy and weak especially when it rains heavily.
