"Receiving this money means a food secure home for me and my family. I will use the transfers to buy oxen and an ox plough which will enable me to plough a bigger portion of my farm within a short time, this translates to more yield ensuring a steady supply of food. As long as I have enough food in my house, I will be able to divert the rest of the money to other activities that can generate income to be spent on education and other basic needs of my family. "
