What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to spend my transfer on buying six iron sheets using the first transfer, the second transfer we will spend it on buying timber that we will used in building our house and furniture that will be put in the house. The final transfer will be spent on buying a cow and a goat so that we can keep them for milk.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement that I am proudest of is that I have been able to plant maize and beens during the previous planting season which enabled me to get a good harvest and for this I am proud.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face in my life is that getting water is a problem as our source of water is very far and it takes me one hour to get the water and we also pay for it.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is when I go to my farm in the morning to do ploughing. This makes me happy as I am able to feed my family with the harvest.
