What did you spend your second transfer on?
I used my transfer for personal treatment (7000), bought a mattress (5000), a solar lamp (6400), boost my mandazi business (5000) and plastered my house (26200).
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
I used to smear my house after every three months and it was getting difficult for me because of my asthmatic condition i could not carry the heavy sand for smearing. With my house plastered it is easier to clean and much comfortable. My mandazi business is doing well too.

What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to spend my transfer on building a kitchen as I don't have one, I will repair my house as it is in a bad state and the remainder I will start a business that I will find viable in my village.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement I am proudest of is that my husband died while we were still a young couple and we used to stay in a grass thatched house by then and fortunately I was able to build a iron roofed house through the small business that I do.

The biggest hardship that I face in my life is in terms of water as we fetch water at a far distance from my house and it takes me almost one hour to get water.

The happiest part of my day is when I go to my farm in the morning,I feel happy because when I harvest I will get food to eat.
