I plan to spend the transfer to construct a home. I also plan to use part of the transfer to pay bride price required by in-laws. I also plan to spend part of the transfer to start a small business that would help me get an income to support my family.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is that I have tried so hard and bought a cow that provide me with milk. I managed to do this through the little savings that I made.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I have faced in life is that of inadequate agricultural land where I can grow crops. Due to this inadequacy, I get inadequate harvest to support my household and hence become victim of hunger.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when am in my farm weeding. I feel happy because its my source of livelihood.
