What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced in my life is lack of enough funds to help raise a happy family. We hardly had anything as a family and very often we could have family wrangles with my wife. It reached a point that we separated with my wife. She later went out to look for a job and the situation improved a bit.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the afternoon when I am done with the day's activities, this is the time that I can relax comfortably and have a good time with my family.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
We have always had plans of having a reliable dairy cow for the family. My wife has also been thinking about starting a poultry keeping business. All these plans have never come to reality as we have been struggling financially. Receiving this cash would enable us realize a good number of things that we have always wished for.
