What did you spend your second transfer on?
When I received my first lumpsum payment, I paid 5000 KES secondary school fees for my daughter then I plastered my main house with sand and cement using 22000 KES of the transfer, I bought 12 iron sheets at 8000 KES and I repaid my silk loan with 15000 KES.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
I was living in a dusty house infected with jiggers and flees and my life changed when I received the transfer since I plastered my main house and I am now free from such infections.

What did you spend your first transfer on?
I used a larger portion of the transfer to fix window panes. Previously I covered my windows with boxes because I didn't have cash to fix them. I also purchased foodstuffs for family consumption.
What are you planning to spend your upcoming transfer on?
I'm planning to cement the floor with most of the transfer. I'm also planning to build a kitchen with the remaining amount.
