What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to build a bigger house because my house is small. The rest of my transfer will be used on paying my dowry so that my marriage is traditionally accepted.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is that I have dedicated my life and time for my children.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face in my life is lack of sufficient finances to feed, educate and cloth my children because I am servicing a loan that I took a year ago and so life has not been easy.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I wake up. I am a jovial person and so when I wake up I find great joy in greeting people and that makes me very happy.
