What did you spend your second transfer on?
I spent my second transfer to construct a kitchen so that my children could find a place to sleep and get a proper place to prepare our meals. I then bought new iron sheets to replace the old, rusty and leaking iron sheets in my main house and then spent another amount to take my child to school who was joining secondary school.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
The biggest difference in my life is that I have been able to comfortably take my child to secondary school thanks to GiveDirectly sending me the transfer.
