What did you spend your second transfer on?
I spent my second transfer on buying a motorcycle to serve as a boda boda so that we get some income. This is because my husband and I did not have stable jobs to earn us a living so getting money even for our children's school fees was by chance.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
The biggest difference in my daily life is being able to get income on a daily basis from the motorcycle that i bought. Because of this I am able to pay my children's school fees and also afford a descent meal.
