What does receiving this money mean to you?
I plan to buy livestock with this money when I recieve it. My bride price hasn't been fully paid so this could enable my spouse to complete it and also get the oxen for ploughing my farm land.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced is late cultivation of crops which has brought about food shortage in my family. This is due to the absence of my own oxen to plough on time. I have always had to wait for other people with oxen to finish ploughing their own land before they can help me as well. And this has often happened late in the rainy season.
