In your opinion, what does GiveDirectly do well, and what does it not do well?
In my opinion givedirectly has done only good things for the people. For instance I was able to buy household items and I now live in a comfortable house courtesy of Givedirectly. So far there is nothing wrong with Givedirectly. We are very happy for Givedirectly.
How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
If I had never received the transfer I would still be unhappy. But the cash transfer changed our lives, we are happy and healthy because we eat well , dress well and sleep well.
