What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship we face is that my husband has not paid my dowry. Since we're both the eldest children in our families, our younger siblings cannot pay dowry to their spouses.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I prepare my children for school. I enjoy being a mother.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means financial empowerment to me. I look forward to investing in an income generating activity so that I can be for financialy independent.
