My life is different than it would have been because before life was blick in our eyes, but now we are happy to have acquired items we never imagined to own in our life time.
In your opinion, what does GiveDirectly do well, and what does it not do well?
In my opinion, givedirectly has done well giving us money to acquire livestock, household items like clothes, mattresses, people built houses, and it never defrauded or cheated us because it kept its promises; and I don't see anything it hasn't done well.
What did you spend your second transfer on?
I spent my second transfer to buy a cow and it's calf, a goat, bought household items like clothes, and bought food.

Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
The biggest difference in my daily life is having the financial help that I had been praying for.
Describe the moment when you received your money. How did you feel?
The moment I recieved my money, I felt happy because I had now got some financial help that I was praying for, for so long.
What did you spend your first transfer on?
I plan to spend my first transfer to buy two bulls. This is because these will help me in ploughing and save my self from begging and cultivating late. I also plan to spend my transfer in molding some bricks that I will use to build my permanet house using the second transfer. This is because the one I use now is grass thatched and leaks when it rains.
