Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
My daily life is better because I have been in position to fix metallic windows plus a door and plaster the wall of my house. These windows have facilitated good aeration within my house. I have also got a water drum for storing water and a new mattress. Before, I had blocked the windows with bricks and mad that prevented good aeration within the house and I was having wooden door. I didn't have where to store water whenever it rained.
Describe the moment when you received your money. How did you feel?
The moment I received my money, I was over whelmed my joy because my plan of buying Metallic windows and a door for my house was going to be accomplished.
What did you spend your first transfer on?
I spent my first transfer for purchasing 3 windows, a door, 15 bags of cement, a trip of sand, timber,nails and paid for construction labour. I further bought a water drum, food and a mattress.
