Born in a family of four children, Biton is the second born child. He has one brother and two sisters. His elder sister is doing second year of secondary school and the other siblings are in primary school.
Both his parents are farmers. They grow maize for food and cotton on very small scale as a cash crop. As many parents in the area, Bitons’ parents do not adequate yields due to lack of finances to improve their farming.
Getting a scholarship through HELP Malawi to study in secondary school has been a great relief to the family who could not afford to support their children due to lack of finances.
Biton is in his first year of four years of secondary education and would like to become a Soldier when he completes his education.
