What does receiving this money mean to you?
My desire has been to purchase good beddings. Currently, I am sleeping on the broken legged bed with my beddings being sacks and old toned clothes, a situation that wakes me up with bruises on my body as well as feeling tired. I have wished to purchase good ones but due to financial instability, this wish has never materialized. Receiving this money means a quality sleep for me as I am planning to spend $100 on purchasing a new bed and mattress. I am also planning to purchase 8 goats at Ksh.3000 each an investment that will charge my life for the better.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My mornings are always busy part of my day because I am always waking up early to prepare my grandchildren to school. Thereafter, I do my household activities until the afternoon when I can have lunch with them when they come back from school. Therefore, afternoon is the happiest part of my day.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Waking up with bruises and tired due to the bad condition beddings been my life challenge. This scenario has turned my life into a laughing stock and I have always prayed that I should not receive guests as this means seeking accommodation from a neighbor. Therefore I consider inadequate finances as my biggest hardship.
