"I am planning to spend my transfer on building a house because the house we currently have is in bad state and needs renovation, I will start a small business of selling maize and I will also buy three cows that will be used in ploughing our farm. I will use part of the transfer in renting a farm as the one we have is very small and is not adequate for farming. I will also start a poultry farm. We will use the remainder to settle school fee arrears for our children."
