What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy sand, cement, timber, round poles, nails and iron roofing sheets which I will use to build my own house and establish my own homestead.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having worked as a subsistence farmer for quite a while and managed to educate my son up to form three 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 build my own house. I am currently renting a house and if I am unable to pay the rent I will be evicted.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening after finishing any tasks that I had planned for the day. I usually relax and enjoy a meal, this makes me very happy.
