What did you spend your third transfer on?
I spent my third transfer on plastering my 3 room house that I had extended using my second transfer. I needed to live in a decent house, since housing is paramount and yet I could not manage to do it before receiving GD support due to the high poverty and the burden of providing Secondary education for my orphaned grandchild.

What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced in life is that we are living in harsh economic times as compared to the old days, this coupled with a lack of a regular source of income has made life so difficult as evident in high prices of basic commodities.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the afternoon when I am through with my duties, having a rest.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
I am very happy because with my old age, I am not able to seriously engage in farming and so I have been depending on help in form of cash from relatives. The cash transfer will help me start a small business here at home as a source of income.
