Lurine received a $484 second payment.
"The biggest difference in my daily life is that I have bought the necessary building materials which I couldn't afford before due to my little pay and purchasing power as well hence I am hopeful and most certain of achieving this long -term goal of having a decent spacious house that will fit my family members comfortably since at the moment I am staying in my late co-wife's house and this situation makes me have low- esteem at times . I believe that having my own house will enhance my sense of belonging and I will forever be grateful to GiveDirectly."
