What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
We plan to buy fishing materials like fishing nets because this is what we depend on to sustain our family. We also plan to build a toilet. The rest we will buy cattle to keep as assets which we can sale later in case we have a problem.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement am proudest of is a cow that I bought with my savings. I feel proud because this is an asset. I had also started plastering my house with cement, the walls and the floor. It's incomplete now due to lack of cash but I still feel proud.

The happiest part of my day is in the morning when everybody wakes up healthy in my house.
