What did you spend your first transfer on?
When I received my first transfer, I paid school fees for my child worth 3000 KES and spent the rest on food. Food consumed a bigger part of the money since this is what we lacked most following high inflation rate and inadequate food in the market.
Describe the moment when you received your money. How did you feel?
The moment I received money from Give Directly, I felt very excited since this is the first lack I have ever come a cross in my life.
