"The biggest difference for me I would say is that I leased a piece of land where I will now be planting cash crops every season going into the future. At least I will have a land to cultivate and get some food which I will sell out in the future once they mature which means I will have more money in the future to take care of other needs."

"My life is different in that I have a constant source of income from the poultry project. The income is enough to cater for my family basic needs and I no longer struggle to provide for my family as I used to do in the past when I used to depend on little money I got from casual jobs. I also have a spacious house which can accommodate all my family members and my sons no longer sleep with their neighbor since they have a house to sleep now."
