Monthly Income of Household Head (Range)

The results above show a substantial proportion (about 45%) of the households interviewed reported that their monthly income is between GMD 1,001 to 5,000. However, approximately 17% reported that they receive less than GMD 1,000 while less than 2% received GMD 25000 or higher as monthly income. Thus, a significant number of households included in this study can be regarded as low-income earners.

Type of Food Aid Household Received

The chart above shows the food items received by households. We see that about 99% of households that received the food aids said they got the rice, about 97% said they received the sugar, and about 85% said they received the oil. Therefore, the results indicate that, among the three (3) food items distributed, the percentage of respondents that reported that their household didn’t receive oil is the highest.
