What does receiving this money mean to you?
I have wished to purchase a 10,000 litre water storage tank costing approximately KSH 20000 to 30000 Shillings. This is because I have to travel about 2 kilometres everyday to fetch drinking water from a community school tank. Receiving this money therefore is a big boost for me because I will not only buy a water storage tank but I will also be able to buy a barbed wire so that I can fence my farm.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is usually in the morning because this is the time I am energized and ready to take up my daily chores. My day entails doing house chores in the morning and then looking after my 4 cows for the better part of the day.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I have been quarrelling with my neighbours for the longest time because my cows usually destroy crops in their farm. This is because I live in an open compound without a strong fence and so its easy fr my cows to go to other people's farms. I have been hoping to buy a barbed wire for the longest time but this has not come to fruition. Lack of finances therefore is my biggest hardship at the moment.
