What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
We are planning to use our transfer on our children's education because we lack sufficient funds to do so. We also want to purchase a water tank so we can harvest rain water because w live very far from the water source.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is that I have struggled very much to educate my children. I have seen some of my children through their secondary education and I am planning to assist them with their college education.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced in life is poor health. My spouse suffered TB that damaged his spinal cord and compromised his ability to work hard.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is at lunch time when my family gather for food.
