What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
We are planning to build a big house because our house is small, buy chairs because we own none and invest in farming by acquiring four bulls for ploughing so that we can produce more and earn better income from sales of produce.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
Our proudest achievement is that we have a house that we built through our hard work as farmers.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship we face in life is that our income is not sufficient to sustain us because we lack capital to improve our farming activities and get good produce.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the afternoon when I am done with my daily activities and taking time to rest with my family.
