What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to spend my transfer on paying school fees for my two children who will be joining secondary school this year, I will use part of the transfer on buying a motorcycle that I can use for transport business so that I can earn extra income and the remaining amount I will spend on building a toilet as currently I don't have one.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement I am proudest of is that my husband died and left me in his father's home but I managed to pick my self up and saved some money that I was being paid at my work place and built the house and home that I currently stay in.

The biggest hardship that I face in my life is that I am a widow and staying as a single parent is not easy hence supporting my children in terms of school fees and the food they eat at times is hard.

The happiest part of my day is when I come back home from work in the evening and I have bought food for my family,it makes me happy to know that they will have some food to eat and they won't go to bed hungry.
