What did you spend your first transfer on?
I spent my first transfer on purchasing a bicycle to facilitate my charcoal business. I collect charcoal from different homesteads and supply to the market. Movement from one homestead to the other has been a major challenge as motorcycles and vehicles charge quite a lot. I end up using almost all the profits made on transport. For this reason, I opted to purchase a bicycle to aid my movement and help me save on time and cash.
Describe the moment when you received your money. How did you feel?
When I received my transfer, I felt so happy because I knew my major challenge in my business would find a solution.

What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money will uplift me from poverty because I am planning to use it to boost my business which is not doing well.
