What did you spend your second transfer on?
When I received my first lumpsum transfer, I spent the whole of it in a second-hand motorcycle.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
Initially, I could solely depend on fishing, which was tiresome and less lucrative, however, when I got transfers and spent it on a motorcycle, I have been getting at least 2000 KES on a daily basis which has improved our standard of living. We can now eat well, dress well and live better, which is the biggest difference in our daily life.

What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I am planning to use my funds to offset my debts, expand my house because it's small, plaster my house so that I don't use much time smearing and use the remaining amount on school fee.
