What did you spend your second transfer on?
I spent 5,000 KES on medical expenses. I bought 26 iron sheets at 18,400 KES, poles at 2,000 KES and nails at 2,000 KES as part of construction materials for my house. We are still planning on buying other construction materials with the remaining amount.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
I live in a very small house which I cook in, my children also spend in it together with the chicken. It is therefore very squeezed. When my house is complete this would be the biggest thing to happen to me as I will move into a big house that can comfortably contain my belongings and the whole family.
