What did you spend your third transfer on?
I dedicated all my three transfers paying school fees for my children, so when I received my third transfer, I could not do the contrary. I have one daughter in the National Youth Service, and I am glad she has since completed. The other twins are soon joining their last year in secondary school. I thank GiveDirectly for this great step I have made in paying school fees.
