What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to spend my transfer on increasing the number of rooms in my house because currently it is small, I will also have the floor cemented using the transfer and to use part of the transfer in buying two bulls and a ploughing machine for my farming activity. I will pay school fees for my child who is joining class eight this year and use the remaining amount to buy land somewhere else.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement I am proudest of is that my husband was able to use money that he got from our farm's harvest to pay for my dowry.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face in my life is that we don't have a farm that we can call ours so we usually rent other people's farms so that we can plant our crops and it is expensive for us.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is when I go to the farm in the morning to plough it, I am happy that I will get food when I eventually harvest the crops.
