I plant kaukau and after I eat some, I take the leftovers to sell for K1 a group.
Money from my sales goes to buying salt, tinned fish and Maggi cube.
I have an only daughter who got married to a man here at Koge, Simbu Province.
I am from Gunagi. If I have money, I pay K5 PMV fare to go home but most times, I walk home.
By the time I get there, my knees will start to hurt, including my back.
I can only start walking again if I boil water to massage my knees. Otherwise, the pain will just be unbearable.
