How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
This transfers have improved my life in that, I constructed a permanent house which I hope to sleep in very soon after finishing. The house I currently stay in is thatched and it has been costly for us to renovate it whenever it leaked.
In your opinion, what does GiveDirectly do well, and what does it not do well?
In opinion, GiveDirectly transfers have enabled me to construct a permanent house. However, there is nothing bad that this organisation has done.
What did you spend your second transfer on?
My second transfer helped me to cover the funeral expenses during the time when I lost my child. A small portion of it was used for painting the house. The spouse is the one who actively spent the money.
