"Upon receiving my recent transfer, I used some amount to pay my rent that had accrued due to lack of money to pay the rent on time. I also bought a bed and also did a little household shopping to sustain me through another week or so. This was of great assistance, without the cash I would have been locked out by my landlord since his patience had run out."
