Receiving this money means I will clear my wife's fees in her tailoring college.I will spend 20,000 KES to pay for her college fees, I will spend 60,000 KES to plaster and cement the whole of my house plus it's floor. I will spend 30,000 KES to uplift my wife's cloth business so that we can get a good profit. My wife is running a clothes business with a capital of 10,000 KES and if I add the capital, we will be getting a higher profit than what we earn currently of 2000 KES a month.
