What did you spend your second transfer on?
I spent most of my second transfer to buy building materials like iron sheets, timber and nails which I have used to build a house and no-longer lives in a rental house. I bought a sack of maize for 30 tins of maize for consumption, spent some amount to pay schools fees for my children who are in primary and secondary schools respectively. The remaining amount, I spent to make a down-payment on a cupboard and a mattress which I do not have.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
The biggest difference is that, I no-longer live in a rented house like before and also I managed to pay school fees for my child who is in high school. Thank you GD for the transfer
