What does receiving this money mean to you?
I intend to spend this money for buying oxen. My family has been praying for Givedriectly transfers ,so this is a great chance for us to fulfill our dream of purchasing oxen since we already have the ox-plough. Owning my oxen will enable me carry out earlier cropping hence increase in food production.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest moment is in the evening. It's a time I share plans with my spouse on how to take care of our family needs. I also share better ways of maximizing on farming as a main source of earning.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face currently is lack of money . My spouse borrowed money from a friend for buying a peice of land and is a big stressing factor in my family . We have sleepless nights since the owner needs it.
