What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means that I will buy bulls for ploughing. Right now, hiring the bulls to plough an acre of land is 100,000shs and this money sometimes is not available. Besides buying bulls, part of the money will be set a side for children's school fees. Some of my children are in a private secondary which requires payment of fees. My hope Is that when I provide better education to my children, then they will have better employment opportunities in future.
