What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to build a few rental houses for financial security, pay dowry to legalise my marriage , plaster my house to save me the energy and cost of transporting good quality soil for smearing and buy a dairy cow.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
Our proudest achievement is that we have a better shelter for our family after living under a leaking roof for six years.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face in life is lack of a good source of income because I would love to be in a position to operate my own business and assist with the financial needs of my family.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening when I am ready to rest after a long day of struggle. This is the only time that I get to forget my problems.
