What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest hardship at the moment is paying my children's school. At the moment they are home because of lack of school fees.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest part of the day is during the day, when at least I get to mingle with my mates and sharing our family experiences.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means a lot to me as I see it changing my life. I am planning to buy some piece of line where I can build and farm on. This has been my dream for years and I'm seeing it coming through with this money coming my way. Secondly, i am planning to settle my children's school fees. The rest of it I'm planning to boost my fish business and start up a grocery business too.
