I woke up, prayed, and at 6:00 a.m., my husband milked the cows. He brought the milk to me to heat up. At 8:00 or 9:00 a.m., I prepared breakfast (kisera). Then I went to the farm during the rainy season. I returned and prepared dinner. I washed clothes. In the evening, I milked the cows. My husband helped me bring water and wood.

We had everything at home in Darfur, everything we needed. We had enough food. We grew millet, ground nuts, okra, tomatoes, beans, and melons. I had thirty goats, fifty sheep, three donkeys, one camel, one horse, and chickens. We used the camel to turn the machine to make oil. We brought things to the market to sell and kept some to eat ourselves.
