Jocinter received a $23 twelfth payment.
"In the next six months, I want to apply for a loan which I will use in buying building material. This is because I want to finally put up my own home. I have been staying in a rental house which has been very expensive. Paying rent every month is one of the reasons why I have so many debts in my life. I believe with this money, I will finally fulfil my dream and have a house I have always wanted by paying back the loan with my monthly transfers."
