What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I plan to boost my farming activities. I am a commercial farmer of vegetables like kales, tomatoes and onions. Since this is the daily bread for my family, I want to rent more land to farm and expand this as much as I can. I also plan to start rearing chicken for commercial purposes. My wife will run this business.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement am proudest of is is this stone house am building now. Although it's been stagnant now for a while, but I never ever thought I would build a stone house. It's not complete but am still proud.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face now is school fees. My daughter should be joining college soon. And the rest of the children go to school too.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I go to the farm. I am a full time farmer, I enjoy farming and feel happy when I tend to my crops.
