What did you spend your second transfer on?
I spent on buying a bull at 15,000 KES, building materials at 8,000 KES and chairs at 10,000 KES. I paid 15,000 KES for my eldest son. I spent the remaining amount on food.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
The biggest difference in my daily life is that I currently own seats and I'm able to plough my farms conveniently and in time without delay. Furthermore, my son is currently learning uninterrupted without the fear of being sent home for school fees.
