"Expectations have now been raised since everything have been running smoothly since we received the transfer. We have had a successful plan after the other and going forward we have great hope to plan and accomplish even more. In the nenxt six months, we hope to have completed the ones which are underway now. Among them and which is a priority is the dairy farming unit which we are establishing in our household and since that might come to pass before the six months elapse, I will be starting the construction of a new house. All this will be possible if all factors concerning the transfers are kept constant."
