I have one cow only. I would like to buy another one dairy cow. This dairy cow will help me pay for my children school fees. I expect to cost around 300 dollars. I also intend to buy maize for my family. I have some in the farm but they have been affected by diseases and likely not to do well.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening when i come back from job and have found something to eat with my family. It brings joy to my life to enjoy dinner with my children.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship in my family is hunger. Our area is easily affected by drought. The little crops we grow in our farm does not do well. We used to depend on maize as stable food and also for commercial but for the past 5 year it has been a challenge due to drought and diseases.
