What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to use my transfer to purchase land for dwelling and build a house. I am currently residing in my parents homestead and tradition requires that I set up my own home because I have grown up children.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is that I have worked hard to ensure that I feed, clothe and give my children basic education after loosing my spouse eight years ago.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face in life is that my income is so little. I have no proper source of income and I am a single parent. I am worried that my children might never even get a chance to go through secondary education.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I am at work knowing that at the end of the day I'll have some food for my children.
