I used a portion of the transfer to pay my two children in primary school fee. I bought my family clothes. I also spent the rest of the transfer to repair my nursery school because the roof was blown off by heavy wind.
Describe the moment when you received your money. How did you feel?
The moment I received the transfer, I felt damn happy. The very moment GD sent that money, the roof of my nursery school was blown of and I didn't have any saving to repair it. It was like God got my lamentation and rescued me immediately.
