What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to save the money for my son who is due to sit for his final primary school exam this year, if he is successful I will use the savings to pay his secondary school fees.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having saved my earnings while I worked as a fisherman and later used the money to purchase building materials and pay workers who built my current house.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face right now is lack of enough funds to carry out some activities like starting a small business, I am currently out of work and the little cash I get from fishing is hardly enough to take care of my family's needs.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I wake up and go to the lake, the atmosphere at the lakeside is usually very lively and this makes me enjoy being with my fellow fishermen.
