What does receiving this money mean to you?
When I receive this money, I will build a low cost ironsheets house because currently replacing grass on the house is expensive. There is scarcity of thatching grass in the region because of prolonged dry spells. My husband staked some piece of land as collateral for getting a loan to pay some dowry to my parents. So, this will be an opportunity for us to pay back the money and regain our piece of land.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is usually the time I finnish having a good meal. So this means its always in the afternoon.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced is lack of money to cater for the household's basic needs like medical care, good, utilities and many other necessities.
