What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
We plan to spend our transfer on farming because we have the plans of hiring a farm so that we can embark on large scale farming. Our second plan is to spend the transfer on payment of dowry.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
We are proud of owning and raising some livestock.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Our biggest difficulty is raising school fees because we only depend on farming as a source of income.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I'm happiest in the evening when I see my children return home from school and they sit down to enjoy their meal.
