"Receiving this money means I will be able to provide quality education for my daughter who just joined form one this year. I feel that she is my light at the end of the tunnel. When she finishes school and gets employment, she will be able to take care of me in my old age. Secondly, I plan to finish roofing my house because its open on side and rain pours directly into the house. Thirdly, I would like to buy goats because they are easier to rear compared to cows and finally, I will buy oxen and an ox plough to aid me in farming so I can get more produce."

"Inadequate finances has been my biggest struggle in life. My parents could not afford to take me to school and hence I had to drop out at class six. With no funds available, I could not pursue my passion in tailoring and ended up getting married at a young age. I now have 3 children with a husband who does casual jobs to feed and educate our children and the struggle continues. "

"In the next six months, I want to ensure I have a semi-permanent house. This I will realize by saving part of my transfers to buy cement and sand to use in plastering my house. I have always had to smear every month and due to old age, I always hire others to smear for me. This has been costly and would want to plaster my house so that the money for hiring someone to smear, I can use on other family needs."
Janetg's family

"I expect to buy a dairy cow for rearing because we do not have a cow of our own. This will be a source of food for us and I will be able to sell the extra as another source of income for our family. I also want to build a better house for our family because the one we are living in now is an old house. I expect our lifestyle to generally improve from how it is now."
