She makes a big difference to my life. You see Im a single parent, my wife died giving birth, and I have five children aged 12, 8, 7, 5 and 4, to look after. I was very happy when I received the donkey, because I can go and collect enough firewood and grass (for thatching) to sell in the market. Shes a very good donkey. Shes fast, thats why I gave her the name Mashi, shes powerful, and shes good with the children. Im very proud to have her and shes the first donkey Ive owned.
