What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest hardship as at now is feeding and carting for other family expenses.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest part of the day is in the morning. Its a blessing to see a brand new day so I'm always very happy during this time.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money has brought me joy. I have been meaning to cement my house but due to lack of money, I have not been able to. With this money coming my way, I am planning to cement my house, start up a small business of my own as fishing is seasonal to help boost my family's income. Lastly I will spend it on my children's fees which has been a big concern to me.
