My family depends mainly on subsistence farming as a source of earning . Getting this money means I will be in position to buy oxen and ox-plough for cultivation purposes. This will enable my family carry out earlier planting , hence an increase in food production.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My favourite part of the day is evening hours. I share a meal with My family members and Iam energized in creating more better plans of sustaining them.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face is lack of enough money. My family leaves in absolute poverty since I do depend on farming as a main income generatiing activity. This is always very season and requires earlier planting which my family can not afford due to lack of money.
