What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to spend my transfer on paying school fees for my child who is in secondary school and the others who are in primary school, I will spend part of the transfer on buying cement that I will use in plastering my house, I will also buy furniture like chairs for my house and some part of the transfer I will also use in building a toilet as I don't have any and the remaining amount I will spend on buying food and clothes for my family.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement that I am proudest of is that I have been able to take my child to school till he finished high school with cash that I have been saving from the sale of my farm produce.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face in my life is that ever since my child cleared high school in the year 2014, I have not been able to raise fees for him to join college as my income is very low.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is when I am spending time with my family in the evening when they come back home from school and they are happy and healthy.
