"The collapse of my maize business is the biggest hardship I have faced.The main reason for its collapse is the hard economic times that we were facing as a family:the hunger and even lack of other basic neccesities.All the capital went towards these needs and this rendered us poor and we resorted to casual labour which are quite hard to get and pay little."

"About 20 years ago, I lost my husband. Accordingly, I never imagined I could manage to sustain my family - it seemed that the world was coming to and end because he (my husband) was the primary breadwinner. Luckily, God has been on my side - I have managed to fend for my family since then. Hence, the lose of my husband serves as the biggest challenge I have faced in life."
