What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy iron sheets, cement, nails and wood, these we will use to construct a house. We will then use the rest of the transfers to start a small business or kiosk in order to get some income.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement that I am proudest of is having worked as a house help, I was able to assist my family sustain themselves.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face right now is lack of a sustainable source of income for both myself and my spouse, this often results in my family missing regular meals and good clothes.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of the day is in the morning if I am able to get up, this is because I am sure that I can at least be able to look for some work and get some income.
