What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to build a bigger house because my house is small and I have a large family. I plan to use part of my transfer on my children's education.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is that my children eat and go to school even after my spouse died. I have worked hard vending charcoal to make ends meet for my family.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest hardship is lack of sufficient funds to feed, educate and build a house for my family. I don't have a reliable source of income and so what I earn is not sufficient to cater for all my needs.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I wake up feeling well and ready to work for my family.
