What did you spend your second transfer on?
I spent 24000 KES of my first lumpsum transfer on 3000 bricks, 14500 KES on 2 steel doors and I have been using the remaining 11500 KES on daily building expenses.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
I initially lived in a small house that was inadequate for us as a family and therefore I had to send my children to the neighbors at night to seek for accommodation which could risk their lives, but when I received transfers, I built a better house and therefore they don't need to cruise in the darkness anymore.
