I received my second transfer when the construction of my permanent house was underway. And therefore my second transfer facilitated the continuation of the house. I am soon accomplishing this goal and I am very excited to live in a permanent house very soon.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
Though I have accomplished a lot, the biggest difference I can mention in my daily life is that I have moved from using an open defecation to a permanent latrine. I dug and built a latrine with some part of the first transfer and it is now ready for use.
