What did you spend your first transfer on?
I received my first transfer when I was owing farmer united-a farming co-operative some money I had borrowed from them to facilitate my farming activities and since repayment was overdue, this had started tormenting me and when I received the money , I repaid it and got the peaceful state of mind.
Describe the moment when you received your money. How did you feel?
The moment I received my money, I became modestly excited; I was excited but at the same time took control of myself. I remained sober in order to keep on track with my originally planned goals. God had just remembered me at the time when my properties could easily be resold to recover the loan.
