How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
I've been living in a very small house but I'm yet to build a big house out of the transfers received from GD.
In your opinion, what does GiveDirectly do well, and what does it not do well?
GD does only good to me and all other people. I have nothing bad I've experienced from GD.
What did you spend your second transfer on?
I have withdrawn my transfers but not yet spent, I'm planning to spend it on buying 15 pieces of iron sheets, 4000 bricks and paying for labour. My focus is now building a house because I'm living in a very small house.

What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
What is the happiest part of your day?
To be visited by GD staff and given a phone, so un expected.
