"I spent my last transfer on paying school fees for my child who used to be sent home each and every time for fee arrears. I now do not have stress on where to get money for paying her fees. The remaining part of the money I used in the expansion of my current house. My former house was so small and my family members and I used to squeeze ourselves in that small house; this was really uncomfortable. I also bought seats because formerly I never used to have proper seats in my house."

"I spent a portion of my third transfer on tiling my floor, something I had admired so much but had no means of acquiring. I am glad that heart desire of owning a tiled house was finally accomplished.

Lastly, I lacked most household items which again I had to purchase to avoid too much borrowing from my neighbors."
