What did you spend your second transfer on?
I bought materials and expanded my house and kitchen (24000), bought a cow (16000) and paid secondary school fees(10000)
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
I always prayed to God to help me move to my own compound, this prayer was answered when i got my token and moved, i could not accomplish this on my own. My child used to be chased from school but now she is settled since i paid the fees. I expanded my house and have space for cooking where i cannot be rained on. I bought a cow and named it Give Direct and i know i will get milk and young ones that will support me especially with school fees for my children.
