How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
Lot of changes have occurred in my family. I and my children are all sleeping well as a result of using the transfer we received from Give Directly to buy house hold materials such as beds, beds sheets and mattresses.
In your opinion, what does GiveDirectly do well, and what does it not do well?
I loved the way Give Directly handles family matters. When we had some missing understandings with my husband, a Give Directly staff visited us and in our meeting, we decide that the transfer be divide so that each of us receives a half of the amount. This was done and we are all happy at home.
What did you spend your second transfer on?
I have utilized my transfer by renovating my house. I spent 300000 on purchasing cement, 250,000 on 2 trips of sand, 120000 on hard cores. I also spent 800000 on paying labour/ builders and the remaining money is being used for home up keep.
