What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy furniture for my house, some clothes, a few cows to rear and finally I will buy cement, sand, timber, nails and round poles to be used to enlarge my house.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having done quite a number of odd jobs and after saving my wages I managed to build my own house.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face right now is lack of a sustainable source of income, this means that I can hardly manage to take adequate care of my family's basic needs.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening after finishing all my chores and I have cooked my supper, I then get to relax and receive any visitors.
