enterpreneur,immediately after my course I used the little I had and borrowed some money from a merry go round group we had formed in our village and started my small barber shop,and that is how I managed to overcome the hardship to achieve an important goal in my life.Am much encouraged by my children's ambitions to study and become professionals in productive fields and then give back to the less fortunate community, my hoby is swimming and ilyke reading motivational books,travelling and making new friends in different cultures.
