What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
My spouse and I are planning to buy oxen for ploughing, take my spouse to hospital for an operation, pay school fees for my children and hopefully we can repair our house.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement that I am proudest of is building my current house using proceeds from my farm.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship we face is lack of school fees for my child who is joining secondary school this year. My spouse also needs to undergo an operation to alleviate pain and swelling in his abdomen and lastly my children do not have a proper house in which to sleep as our current house is cramped.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning, this is because that is when I go to weed my farm and I know if I work hard I will get a good harvest.
