What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy sand, cement, timber, round poles, nails, iron roofing sheets and a steel door which I will use to build a better house for my family. I will also use part of the transfers to pay school fees for my children.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having worked as a casual worker for many years and after saving my earnings for quite a while, I was able to buy a cow and a ploughing machine. I have also been able to educate two of my children up to secondary school level using money that I got from selling my farm produce.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face right now is lack of a sustainable source of income for myself, I am a casual worker and jobs are difficult to get, quite often I do not have enough money to take adequate care of my family's basic needs.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening if I have been able to earn some money during the day, I am usually happy because I am sure my family can have a good, nutritious meal.
