How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
My life is different in that, the family income has greatly improved because of the motorbike that does transportation business, in a day I get 15000 ugx to 20,000 ugx that has enabled me to provide food and medical treament for my family, I couldn't have bought this motorbike had I not recieved money from Give Directly.
