What did you spend your third transfer on?
From my third transfer, I bought a sugarcane plantation, bought a sheep, bought a steel door, and also I bought a cow. I spent half of my transfer to buy a sugarcane plantation hoping that when the canes are ready, I will sell and get the money to pay school fees for my children without asking for help form anyone. This will help them have a better future than the one I have.
Do you have any new goals that you didn't have before receiving the transfer?
My new goal is to stabilise my sugarcane business to enable me meet and sustain my family's daily expenditure
How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
My life is different in that my children no longer walk in tattered clothes like they did before when they did not have good clothes, I also invested my transfer on sugarcane plantation which will in turn help me educate and take care of my family through the income from the business. Am very grateful to GD for the transfer and please continue helping the unfortunate like me.
