What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to invest in the sales of second hand clothes in order to be able to educate my children, plaster my house to save time, cost and energy in frequent smearing and construct a pit latrine to improve the hygiene of my dwelling.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is that through sales of firewood and sisal twine, I have managed to purchase goats and household furniture.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face in life is that I lack money to feed and educate my children because I have no reliable source of income.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is the afternoon when I am weaving my sisal twine or collecting firewood for sale because that's how I earn income.
