"I am planning to spend my transfer on renovating my house so that it can have a new look,I will use part of it to pay school fees for my child in primary school and part of it I will rent a farm so that I can plant my crops as I don't have enough piece of land for agricultural purpose. The remainder of the transfer will be spent on purchasing a water tank as our land is dry and getting water is a challenge hence I will do water harvesting."

"I am planning to spend my transfer on renovating my house because the one I stay in is in a bad state and it is almost crumbling, I will use part of it to fence my home as it is open and someone can trespass easily, I will also buy a water tank because our village has water shortage problem and I will use part of it to buy two bulls that I will use to plough my land. I use the remaining amount amount to pay college fee balance for my son who is also my helper."
