What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money will help me a lot in my medication. I was diagnosed with Tuberculosis a few months ago and I am yet to fully recover. My plan is therefore to spend 2,000 KES of the transfer to buy medicine. For my long term plans, I plan to start rearing chicken to help me with little expenses at home such as buying food.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Despite the health challenges that I have , I am glad that I have been able to get a little food for me and my family in the recent months. This has helped make my health condition better.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest challenge is getting income to sustain me and my family. It is a challenge because I can no longer do physical jobs that earn me income like farming. I am less active especially because I suffered from Tuberculosis a few months ago. I am not fully recovered. I have a family of 8 children and it is really tough catering for their needs. I am sometimes forced to seek help from my relatives.
