What does receiving this money mean to you?
My plan is to build iron-roofed house with this money. This will help me save the money I spend in looking for thach grass each year. The money saved I can use for managing the demands of my family like better feeding ,education and providing good medical care where need be.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest moments is always evening hours. The whole day I do ride motorcycle as source of earning and my children are so lonely at home since their mother abandoned us. Iam much more relax and feel comfortable while chatting in the evening with them.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face is lack of income generating activity. Iam so poor and being single handed I depend on casual labour as ameans of survival. This has proved very challenging where by what I earn from casual labour can not meet the needs of my family. My children do not get balance diet in their meals hence has resulted to poor health growth.
