What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy nails, timber and iron sheets with the first transfer. The second transfer transfer we will buy cement and sand, these materials will be used to build ourselves a better house. The last transfer we shall use to purchase oxen and a plowing machine so we can have an easier time tilling our farm.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having farmed vegetables and tomatoes and after selling the produce I managed to buy iron sheets and a goat.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face currently is lack of enough money to provide basic needs for my family, this is because our main source of income, farming, is labor intensive and inefficient. This therefore means the returns are minimal.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of the day is in the morning when I wake up. This is because I can praise the Lord for granting me life for another day.
