What does receiving this money mean to you?
Givedirectly transfers will enable me marry a wife. I will spent the money to buy animals (cows and goasts) for marrying my spouse. This will make me recognised by my in-laws as their son in- law hence benefiting all traditional rights.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My best moments are in the evening hours while at Apade trading centre. Iam able to chat with friends about how to over come some challenges at home. This has driven me in solving home issues.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face currently is lack of farm land. Iam so much desiring to invest in farming but due lack of land all my plans have been distorted . My family lives in miserable life since I can not afford providing neccessities as required for head of family.
