Receiving this money will mean a lot to me. I am currently building a house for my family but I have halted the construction because I do not have money. I will use 800 dollars from the amount to finish the construction and also funish it. I will top up the remaining 300 dollars and use the amount to buy a dairy cow that cost 500 dollars to supplement my income.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is at night when I get to rest because of the job that I did during the day and being able to meet the needs of my family.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest challenge I have faced in my life is employment. I am a stay at home mum and my husband is not yet fully employed with the government as a teacher and we rely on the little amount he gets as a teacher at Tengecha boys to feed my family.
