What did you spend your third transfer on?
I spent my third transfer on repairing my motorcycle, buying food for my family and clothes for my wife.
How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
My life is different than it would have been if I never received the transfer because ever since I joined Give directly I have been able to easily provide for my family which would have been very hard if I never got the transfer.
In your opinion, what does GiveDirectly do well, and what does it not do well?
In my opinion Give Directly does well in its selection of those to get the transfer. It's fair and open and it has a heart for the poor.I don't jave anything it does not do well.
