What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
We plan to build a new house to accommodate our family since we are currently living in a smaller house. We also plan to buy oxen plough to help us in farming. We also plan to use the remaining balance to start a business.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement that make us proud is that we are happily married to each other and we have children together.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that we have faced in life is hunger. We don't have a reliable source of income and so we easily become victims of hunger.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening when I get meals for my family.
