"My biggest hardship is inadequate finances to properly meet my family's needs. My hotel business has not been doing well lately since the structure I built is almost collapsing. This has driven away many customers thus negatively affecting my source of income which in turns affects my ability to provide food, pay for education and other necessities. I am happy though that Give Directly has come to my aid. I will now be able to revive my business. "

"Previously, I used to get income from transporting goods using a hand cart at Awasi which is our nearby village market. The post-election clashes destroyed this handcart and from that day life was cruel because feeding ten members of my family were difficult. Therefore there were those days we could sleep hungry and my children stayed home due to school arrears with this hard my spouse couldn't bear hence and we had regular household conflict. My life is different in that I have cultivated the leased land which I am certain of enough yields at the end of this harvesting; I will sell the surplus and also feed my family with ease. My dairy cow which I bought with the part the transfer will have reproduced in future thus buying milk like I am doing it currently would not be the issue. I will save the money to meet other additional needs for my family and this will bring peace and a happy family like before."

"My life is different because I was able to buy new building materials which I used to erect a new house that is more spacious and can accommodate my family quite comfortably as compared to the small structure that i used to live in before. Initially I had a small house which could barely accommodate my family and it was quite uncomfortable sharing the small structure with my kids because there was lack of privacy."
