What does receiving this money mean to you?
Currently, I have no shamba. I like farming but I have not been able to execute it due to lack of land. With 50000KES can acquire an acre. The rest of the money shall save for my child who is about to be enrolled for pre-primary education.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I enjoy the afternoon hours especially when my husband is not around. Am eighteen years, my husband is nineteen years. Since we are both immature,we tend to cross paths alot.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Lack of money is my greatest challenge. I have no beddings, we sleep on a mat on the ground.No no clothes for my baby and myself. Am forced to repeat wearing the same clothes after every three days. At times I have to abscond from attending social gatherings including burials and weddings due to lack of a nice dress to put on.
