What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means that I will be able to start my longterm dream of poultry keeping which I have not been able to do since the little earning that I receive from the casual job always goes to my shoppings and my elderly grandmother upkeep.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest part of the day is usually in the afternoon after I get paid for weeding in the farms in the morning sessions, this is majorly because I catch up with friends and we engage in stories that makes me forget my own struggles and worries in life.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest hardship has been going to the sugar farms to seek for opportunities to cut cane or weed them and many a times I get back home not taken for the days job, whenever this happened I would end up going a day without meals.
