What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to renovate my house because the walls have cracks. I am also planning to purchase land because my ancestral land is small and I have no place to do farming.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is that I am a mother of two beautiful children that make me very happy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship we face is lack of money because we have no proper source of income.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening when my husband is back from work and we are talking and laughing
