What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face right now is lack of enough money to adequately cater for my families basic needs. At times they are forced to have only one meal a day due to financial difficulties and this often makes me very sad.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is around midday when I am sitting together with my friends and we are chatting. We often laugh and crack jokes and this makes me very happy.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means that my spouse and I can start a small business which will supplement our income and ultimately improve our lifestyle.
