What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face in my life is that I stay in a grass thatched house and when it rains we get rained on together with my kids as the roof cannot sustain heavy rains. This makes my family to be sick so often.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I go to work as a casual labourer in a building construction site. This makes me happy as I will be able to buy food in the evening for my family.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
The receiving this money makes me to be very happy as I will be able to afford a better house than the one I current stay in as almost all my neighbors stay in iron roofed houses while I still stay in grass thatched house.
