What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
We are planning to buy sand, cement, iron roofing sheets, timber, round poles and nails, these are to be used to build a better house for my family. If any funds remain they will be used to pay school fees for my our children.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having started a small business selling tomatoes and fish, this has enabled me educate my son up to form four level in secondary school.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face right now is lack of enough money to pay school fees for my children, I am afraid some of them might drop out of school. I also lack enough money to build a better house for my family.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is around midday when my children come home for lunch Watching them have their lunch as they chat uplifts my heart and I get very happy and excited that I have been blessed with a wonderful family.
