What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
We plan to spend three quarters of our transfer on school fees since that is the major challenge we are facing right now. We plan to spend the remaining amount on house renovation.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
I would say, we are proudest of raising seven children and sending all of them to school. I am now happy that I have daughter who has completed secondary education.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
I would say, raising school fees and getting sufficient food that is enough for the whole family is our biggest hardship.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I'm happiest in the evening because it is the time I'm able to show my children how to do their homework.
