I bought 20 iron sheets at 13,000 KES to add to 10 others I had bought earlier,a steel door at 8,000 KES, two steel windows at 6,000 KES, poles at 14,000 KES, nails at 2,000 KES and labour at 5,000 KES so as to construct a new house.
Describe the biggest difference in your daily life.
I was living in a one-roomed house that was too small for my family and our belongings. Through GD I have received money to construct a bigger house with better roofing and walls that can well contain my family and the rest of our property. We are now safe and comfortable.
