What did you spend your second transfer on?
I paid 30,000 KES school fee for my sister-in-law in high school, bought five sheep at 10,000 KES, used 8,000 KES to erect a pit latrine, then added some of my money to the rest of the cash and paid a debt of 2,000 KES which we had to take my mother-in-law to hospital.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
My home is now more hygienic than before because we have a decent pit latrine.
