What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to spend my transfer on buying wire mesh that I will use to fence my farm, I will also buy two bulls and a ploughing machine, I will use part of it to buy seeds for watermelon, butter nut, tomatoes and kales. I will also use my transfer on buying sprayer pump, insecticide chemicals and fungal medicines for my farm. I will buy bricks and iron sheets for building a house by adding other funds to the remaining transfer.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement I am proudest of is that I have been able to educate my wife up to diploma level using my own cash got from farming.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face in my life is lack of capital to invest in my farming activities.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is when we have supper with the family in the evening as we chat and inquire about each other's day.
