What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship i have faced is lack of money to expand my agricultural products bussiness.I ride my bicycle every day to and fro for over 40 miles.This is tiresome
What is the happiest part of your day?
Evening is my favourite part of the day.This is the time when I return back home after selling my sweet potatoes in a nearby town.Staying with my wife and children and seeing them enjoy what i have bought for them to eat makes me happy.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means building a new house.Part of this money will also help me expand on my current products agricultural business by establishing a produce store within my village trading centre.
