What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face in life is paying school fee for my children. I earn so little from my small scale business which is not enough to clear my children's school fee on time.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening after closing my business to join my family for dinner.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money is like an answered prayer to me. I am glad God reached me through give directly and my life is going to be transformed.
