We are planning to spend our transfer in paying dowry, building our own home and to start a business of selling clothes. We also plan to buy household items like furniture. We will also clear our debts in the village.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement I am proudest of is that we managed to sell our farm produce and used the cash to buy furniture for our new house.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face in life is in terms of getting food as our income is very low and at times we go to bed hungry.

The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I go to my farm to till it.
