What did you spend your second transfer on?
I bought a steel door for 8,000 KES, clothing for 1,500 KES, medical expenses was 1,200 KES, funeral expenses cost 1,000 KES and the remaining 38,000 KES will be spent on plastering the house.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
I will soon plaster the house once the workers start working and this will relieve me from constant repair of the walls and floor which has been consuming so much of my time.
