What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy a piece of land as land is limited at our home, we also plan to build a house on the piece of land.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having started a child center from scratch with limited resources from our savings and now it is up and running, in fact it is growing steadily.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship we face is lack of enough land in the village for us to build a home, so we are forced to rent a house at the shopping center.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening after work, this is because I am able to finally rest with my family and reminisce about the day.
