What did you spend your second transfer on?
We spent 10000 KES of the first lumpsum in paying hospital bill for my child, used 19000 KES to buy a cow and opened a business with the rest of the money.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
I am grateful my child healed because we thought he had epilesy but we had no money to take him to the hospital but when we took him to the hospital after receiving money from GD the doctors diagnosed him with strong malaria which is all gone now.

What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to spend my transfer on buying a piece of land as we have a small land, I also plan to spend part of the transfer to take my child to hospital as he is sickling and we will spend the remaining amount in starting a small business of selling second hand clothes.
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement I am proudest of is that I used to stay in a rental house at the market centre but now we have our own land and house which we stay in as we used small savings to buy the land.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I face in my life is that we don't a a stable source of income and our crops are still in the field so getting cash to buy food is not easy.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is when I take snacks like bread to the market in the afternoon to sell, I am happy that I will have some money to buy food when I sell.
