What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
We are still planning together thus cannot definitely say what the final outcome will be.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement that I am proudest of is my house, this is because we saved quite a lot and had to deny ourselves a number of things in order to build the house.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship we have is lack of a steady source of income and our main source of income which is fishing has very little returns.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of the day is in the morning when I go to my kitchen garden and get some vegetables. These I sell at the market, thus I get money and I can then buy various items for my family.
