What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced in life was loosing my daughter who was in secondary school then and was the only hope to my family, she died while in school after attempting abortion. She was the only child among her siblings who had managed to go to school up to secondary level and the family had high hopes on her.

The happiest part of my day is in the evening when I am through with the day's activities.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
I so happy about receiving this transfer because currently, the piece of land that I built a house on belongs to my brother-in-law who might need it back at some point in time. I desire to own a piece of land myself.
