Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
At least now I have my own ox plough and I can prepare my own farms without straining. This is because, before the coming of the GD, I used to dig through my own hands but now I have cattle which can now plough my farm

What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy cement with the first transfer to plaster my house. I will then use the second and third transfers to build a toilet, an external kitchen and possibly enlarge my house.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having opened a small hotel business at the beach serving meals to the Fisher folk.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have is that I had tilled a small farm but flooding destroyed the crops and now I do not know how I will survive.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of the day is when I am able to tend to my farm.
