What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening when my family has had atleast a meal.
It gives me the confidence that I was able to provide.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is inadequacy of farm land.
The only piece that is available for cultivation is too small to accommodate the plan.
I have had to just give up on other things which in the end has always resulted into food shortage.
I have not had the opportunity to buy more land because I don't have the resources to do so.
