What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I would like to use part of the transfer to pay school fees for my daughter who is in form two and has fees problem. Secondly l would wish to open up a business to generate income to sustain my family. Finally l would like to build a new home so that I can be fully independent.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is that l have struggled to build my own house though very small.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest hardship in life is lack of proper source of income to pay school fees for my children.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest part of the day is in the morning when children are able to go school without being sent home for school fees.
