I am called Ogolla Maxwell, 23 years old, married with one child. I live in Abongedero village, Oyaro Parish, Abim Town Council in Abim district.
I attended O-level education but dropped out of school before completion due to school fees challenges. During my time out of school, my family’s livelihood was not good. I went to offer labour in people’s gardens to get money but the opportunity was too limited. This was my family’s major source of income. During that time I did not save any money from my meagre income.
I have started saving so that in the near future I open up my own garage. I cannot recall buying any new cloth during this time because I could not afford. I had a few friends and rarely did anyone accord me respect.
I undertook vocational training in motorbike repair. After acquiring the necessary skills, am now a salesman and a mechanic in a nearby garage and earn 5000/- to 20,00/- a day. I have started saving so that in the near future I open up my own garage.
My future plan is to establish my own garage from my savings.
