"I am planning to spend my transfer on buying a generator that we can use to pump water that will be used in irrigating our farm as our land becomes very dry during dry seasons, I will use part of the transfer on renovating our house by buying bags of cement so that we can plaster our floor as the dust from our house currently is affecting my chest, I have chest problem and I haven't had cash to go to hospital for check up so I will use part of the transfer to pay for any medical bill that may arise if I go for check up and the remaining amount I will use to pay school fees for our four children who are in an academy in Kodula so that they are not sent home for fees."
