What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to use the transfer to improve on my farming activities and build a new house. My current house is too small and is about to collapse.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is that I am a hard worker and I have been able to support my family through farming.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest hardship is lack of sufficient resources to meet all my family needs.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is at night. I am happiest at night because during the day I am under a lot of pressure to provide for my family. It's at night that I feel relaxed.
