What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy sand, cement, timber, round poles, nails and iron roofing sheets which I will use to build a better house for my family. The remaining transfers will be used to pay school fees for my children who are in primary schools and one who is in a secondary school.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having toiled in my farm for many years and after diligently saving my earnings for a while I was able to buy a dairy cow.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face right now is lack of a sustainable source of income for myself, this means that I am often unable to pay school fees for my children and they cannot even finish the school term without being sent home.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I wake because I can praise and worship my Lord.
