What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy sand, cement and lime which I will use to plaster my house. I will also buy two oxen and a ploughing machine with the other transfers, if there are any funds remaining I plan to start another small business.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having started a small business selling groceries and the profits I gained enabled me to buy household items like chairs.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face right now is lack of enough money to buy some oxen and a ploughing machine which I can use when I am tilling my farm.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I wake up, this is because the Lord has blessed me and my family and we can all praise him.
