What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I'd like to expand my house, as it is currently too small. I'd also like to buy a cow for milk that I can sell to the community for sustenance.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
I am proud to have raised my children to take after my cleanliness and tidiness.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I never got a chance to go to school like my peers, and I've lived a poor life because of that. Sometimes I feel really pained because I cannot afford the niceties and pleasures of life.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Am happiest when I have food on the table.
