What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy cement so that I can plaster my house, the rest of the transfers I will inject as capital into my small business. The business entails buying fish from Lake Victoria in bulk and reselling the fish in the village.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having bought household items, I did this using profits I got from selling fish.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have is lack of a sustainable source of income, this therefore means that I cannot live a comfortable life.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of the day is in the evening when I am from the lake, this is because I get to spend time with my children and we all can rest.
