What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to purchase land and build a house because I am currently living in a rented house.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is that I have a family and a business that I get daily income from. I lost my parents at childhood and what I own today is the product of my own strength.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face in life is that my income isn't sufficient to cater for all my financial needs and that's the reason I live in a rental house.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening when I am done with work and taking records of products sold and the profit accrued.
