What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means better Education for my children. Currently i have 3 children in secondary school and am struggling so much to pay their school fees since I depend only on casual jobs. I will spend ksh 70,000 on paying school fees and clearing pending fee balance, I will also use ksh 30,000 to buy a dairy cow for the family.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest of my day is in the evening. This is because it is the time when I get enough rest after a busy day of going up to do casual jobs and making sure that my family have something to eat.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Without a reliable source of income it has been difficult to meet the basic needs for my family. This is because I depend only on casual jobs and Farming and of late the production from the farm has been so poor leaving me without any soure of income.
