My plan is to spend the money for building iron-roofed house. I currently almost sleep out because my grass thatched house leaks alot since it's grass is roaten. When it rains suffer under coldness and miss sleep and this affects my health. I will have a better shelter after bulding with Givedirectly money. My household members will no longer have aburden of sleepless nights under coldness.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is afternoon hours. I feel stressed a lot but only able to put a smile on my face after eating food during lunch time. My enzymes relax and I feel better.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face is food shortages. I was left as a widow with only a plot to stay, so I really donot have where to cultivate. This means that I rely on causal labour which does fetch enough to sustain my household needs.
