What does receiving this money mean to you?
Farming is my mainstay economic activity. I depend on subsistence crop farming and livestock keeping. However,I sold most of my livestock to pay school fees for my children when they were in secondary school. Receiving this money means that I will buy two dairy cows targeting milk production.I will also buy goats and then spend the remaining money on tilling my farm to plant maize.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Over the last six months, my farm did well because I harvested enough maize that will last until August when my other crop will be ready to harvest. I am not worried about maize at this time when my neighbours have to buy the commodity at exorbitant prices.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest challenge is getting sufficient food for the household. This is especially a problem now because i need yo balance my diet in this old age. I lack enough milk and proper vegetables because I neither have a dairy cow nor a source of income to buy the food that I need.
