What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this moeny means owning oxen that will support me in animal traction. The animals will help open up a large portion of land that will enable my household to have enough food and some of it can even be sold in order to meet other family problems.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest part of the day is in the noon time after I have eaten lunch. It makes me happy because when I eat, I get energy that will support me to do my other household chores.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship is lack of money in order to support me get adequate treatment. I have some pain in the borns and I can not receive adequate treatment because I do not have money. My income is through farming and the to lack of oxen to open up large plots of farm land, what I produce is only for household consumption.
