How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
Had I not received the money, my family members would have been thrown out of the house in the cold by the landlord because I already owed him two month's arrears at the time when I received the money. In as much as I still face challenges in meeting the household needs, I'm grateful that I was able to pay the house rent and we currently have a roof over our heads. This is how different my life is.
