Jesse's priority in life is to raise his family's standard of living. Through farming, Jesse is able to meet his family's needs and pay his children's school fees on time. He is 43 years old, is married and has three children in school. Jesse’s wife is a housekeeper.
Despite financial difficulties he has encountered, Jesse is working hard to further meet his family's needs. At present, Jesse can’t afford to buy farm inputs he needs for his farm.
