What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to increase the size of my house, buy some livestock, buy clothes for my children and build a pit latrine.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having saved wages I get after doing odd jobs and I have managed to buy two goats as well as several chicken.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face right now is that ever since my spouse died in the year 1994, I have been forced to take take care of my family single handedly, this has put a lot of strain on my health and I fear that I might be hospitalized soon.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I wake up, I am always grateful to the Lord for granting me life.
