What did you spend your second transfer on?
I spent 36000 KES of my first lumpsum transfer on 2 oxen, 12000 KES on 20 iron sheets and the remaining 7725 KES on food.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
The biggest difference in my daily life is that I am now having my own oxen and therefore I don't need to hire from anyone at a fee to plow my farms. I am now able to plow my farms again in time, save more and produce more yields that can increase our savings.
