"Given the unpredictable nature of my earnings from selling vegetables from my home, I recognize the importance of diversifying income sources to support my five children and alleviate the financial burden on my husband. Consequently, I aim to invest more in livestock, particularly goats, as they offer a practical and versatile solution. As these animals reproduce, I plan to exchange them for cows in the future, facilitating plowing activities and providing a flexible asset that can be sold in times of financial need."

"My plan has been to set up a retail shop, the budget for this is about $600. I cannot get such a huge amount at once to start this business. Since my work is buying and selling animals my plan was to buy goats when they are kids until I get to ten goats, feed them and allow them grow to maturity where I will sell and afford two cows, the cows will only need a short while to mature to get to each be sold for $400 which will be enough for me starting the business."

I view this as a worthwhile endeavor, as it not only contributes to the current success of my business but also serves as a stepping stone for acquiring goats and eventually cows in the future. I plan to allocate subsequent transfers towards realizing this goal. The progress I have achieved in this business this far brings me satisfaction, and I am eager to further stabilize and fortify it in the coming year."

"My goal is to further invest in livestock rearing. From previous cash transfers, I have acquired three goats. Ultimately, I aspire to own a dairy cow, whose milk can contribute to my family's consumption and generate income when sold. While I cannot currently estimate the cost of a cow, I plan to continue accumulating livestock like goats until I have enough to exchange for a cow in the future. I am optimistic that the cash transfers will enable me to expand my goat herd and work towards my long-term livestock-rearing goals."
