What do you plan to do with the cash transfer?
This will be a chance to be an entrepreneur. I have longed to start a poultry business to boost my current earnings and I am glad it is a few months away. How I pray I get lucky to receive this money. $400 will be enough for a start since I have the land to carry it out. The remaining amount will help complete my house since I was able to put up a balcony but it is not complete. I am worried about my security. Once I complete it I will feel comfortable leaving my assets on my balcony knowing that they are safe.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I feel so happy and at peace living in my house. Not so long ago I used to live in rentals and it was uncomfortable and stressful to live in such small spaces. When I moved in September last year it was a relief, part of my dream achieved. Now I come back from work to my home, despite the distance I have to cover, the fulfillment I have is priceless
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I have been thinking of starting a poultry business and raising livestock but I am stuck due to financial constraints. I recently spent all I had building my house and now I need to invest in something else, especially with the current economy (times are tough). My mind is fixated on this project and I wish I get the funds to accomplish it.
