What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to spend my transfer on building a house as the house we currently stay on is very small, I will spend part of the transfer on buying a water tank so that I can harvest water and the remaining amount I will spend on buying two bulls that I can use in ploughing our farm.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement that I am proudest of is that we able to buy a dairy cow that we now get milk to feed our family. We bought the cow using cash that I got from the sale of our farm produce.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face in my life is that our income is very low and this hinders us from providing all the basic needs that our family requires like food and clothes.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is when I do laundry in the morning as this makes me happy to see my family having clean clothes.
