What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy materials that I will use to build a homestead. I will also use part of the transfers to start a small business.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having tilled my farm and after selling the produce I managed to buy household items.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have is lack of a steady source of income, this means that we cannot afford to build our own homestead and have to rent a place to live in.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part my day is in the evening when I can finally rest after working all day. It make me very happy when I rest and have a meal with my family.
