What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to use my transfer to purchase a motorcycle for my wife so that she can earn her daily income and assist me to take care of our children.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is that I managed to build a house after living in a rental house for ten years. I am now happy to give my family a home where we are free to engage in any activity.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced in my life is that I lack reliable source of income to sustain my family.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is at night because I get a chance to rest after the day's work.
