How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
I am now living a life full of hope and joy than before. I bought a plot of land and I am constructing my dream house out of the transfer that I received from Give Directly. Long live Give Directly I pray for to get more funds so that you continue supporting other people in our communities.
In your opinion, what does GiveDirectly do well, and what does it not do well?
In my opinion, transferring the money directly to me was the best practice I have ever seen in life. I managed and planed for my money very well and I will live to remember Give directly for the rest of my life.
What did you spend your second transfer on?
I spent my transfer by buying some 4 trips of bricks at 500000/=, 32 Iron sheets at 450,000/=, 10 bags of cement at 320000/=. I have also spared the balance of 330,000/= for paying the builders and also paying school fees for my children.
