What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means that I will plaster my house because rats can enter and start digging holes in the floor. The balance of the money I will use it to purchase oxen. Right now we cannot dig a big portion in the garden because we use hand hoes and this has made us not to have enough food in the house.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest part of the day is Lunch time. It is the time that I chat with my family when they are all around.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest hardship is lack of oxen for ploughing since I cannot plough or dig a large piece of land using handhoe. People who have oxen hire them out for a fee.
