"I have two children in secondary so I used part of my third transfer on paying school fees for them. I used to pay the fees in bits and sometime they could be sent out for arrears. This time they managed to go to school without being out. The school they attend is so far away from home so, I spent some of the money to them a bicycle this has saved them from walking the long distance. It was also unfortunate that where my wife runs a food kiosk, was razed down by fire so we had to revive the business as it is one of our main sources of income. I am happy the business is running again. The remaining amount I spent on buying goats for rearing. Thank you."
