We bought 15 iron sheets for 10,500 KES, nails for 3,500 KES, poles for 11,400 KES and paid 10,000 KES to enlarge my house. We also bought a wooden door for 3,500 KES, transport cost was 3,000 KES and the rest of the transfer was spent on other HH expenses.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
My house was quite small and uncomfortable with no proper door, but I have since enlarged it and it can well fit my family and our belongings and it now has a proper door.

I'm proud of raising God fearing children and being able to send them to school especially after the death of my spouse.

I would say,the sickness I have is my biggest hardship because I'm too weak to fend for my family and sometimes they go without food.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I'm happiest in the evening while having dinner together with my children because we make jokes and have fun while eating and that is when I get to know their likes and dislikes.
