What did you spend your first transfer on?
When I received my first transfer, I used 6000 KES from it to buy 2 goats to rear in my home in order to be at par with my peers in the village. I also used 000 KES to clear school fees balance for my child in secondary school so that he is not sent home for the same. The rest was then spent on buying maize for my family's food.

The moment I received my money, I felt so happy because I had a dream of owning my own goats, and this was going to be actualized with the money received.
