What do you plan to do with the cash transfer?
The future of my children has become my greatest focus as of now. Currently, I have two daughters who have completed secondary school level. They are yet to join college and this has worried me most since they might get early pregnancies for being idle at home. My plan is to ensure they pursue technical courses of their choices. Thus, receiving this money will mean supporting them to realize their future goals. Both of them desire to do beauty and therapy courses and I therefore, intend to pay their fees to ensure they get enrolled. I plan to spend $500 of the transfers on this. On the other hand, I will spend $200 to buy an indigenous dairy cow to produce milk for my consumption and to sell the surplus. The remaining amount will help me to repair my house by smooth-finishing its walls and the floor. What a happy life to achieve all these!
What is the happiest part of your day?
Although I am currently worried about the food security in my household, I am so grateful for having had enough food for the last six months. This has helped my family of 4 to have a decent livelihood unlike before when we struggled to put food on the table. Thus, this is generally what has brought me joy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Failing to support my two daughters in college is what I consider as my biggest concern. It's been two years now since they completed secondary school level but they are still at home. This has worried me the most since, it can damage their reputation once they get involved in unwanted behavior. This has affected me psychologically and I consider financial constraints as my biggest challenge.
