What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I plan to build a house using the transfer. I also plan to buy oxen plough to help me during land tillage. I also plan to use part of it to pay school fees and also pay dowry.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement that am proud of is that I have managed to raise my kids despite being a single father.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced is living as a single dad. Since we separated with my wife, it hasn't been easy to explain to my children especially the younger ones where their mother has gone.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when am in the lake doing fishing because I know that at the end of the day I will be able to get food my family.
