What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to inject some capital into my brick making business, pay school fees for my two daughters who are in secondary school and finally build my own homestead.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having started a small business where I make bricks for sale and by saving the profits I have managed to educate my children and I am still educating them.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face right now is that my brick making business is not as profitable as before due to the high cost of inputs , this translates to decreased income available for use at home and inevitably we cannot live comfortably.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening if I am sure that my family has something to eat. I can then relax and this makes me very happy.
