I look at my house and I get frustrated with its condition. It is slowly falling apart, the roof is leaking, and the walls seem to be crumbling. All I want is to renovate it, get new iron sheets, and erect pillars to support the structure. I will be saving part of the transfer to buy the equipment needed for the renovations as I use the rest for food and any other household requirement.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I thank God for the blessing of children, I am only but a farmer, and I do not make a living from it. I depend on my children for support. Every month they send money to my account to help buy food to sustain me throughout the month. I always look forward to them sending the money since at times I exhaust it instantly.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Every time it rains I am always distressed with the condition of my house. Rains are supposed to bring joy, especially in our land since it only rains for a few months. Instead, I am worried about the rain entering my house and how I will sleep at night, this is my current situation.
