What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to buy a chair, a big plastic container for storing water, some clothes for my children. The other transfers I will use to buy some livestock like cows, goats, sheep and chicken. These I will rear and sell their products, like milk and eggs.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
My proudest achievement is having struggled all my life and managed to raise my children and lived up my age.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have is that in the village we have to do a lot of menial and hard labour jobs just to survive and at the end of it all the wages are minimal and barely cover living expenses.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when I wake up. This is because I am able to thank the Lord for granting me life for another day.
