What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I plan to build a home because I am homeless. This may consume all the cash, but if something remains, I will use for school fees.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement am proudest of is that I decided to invest in vegetable farming of tomatoes. I got a good harvest. After sales I paid school fees, bought a goat and some chicken.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face is the need to build a house, at least so that my kids can have a place to call home.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I do house chores like washing utensils and cleaning the house. I like being in a clean environment.
