What did you spend your token payment on?
I spent my first transfer on partial fee for our child at the University(10,000 KES)
Describe the moment when you received your money. How did you feel?
The moment when I received my money I felt great relief since at that moment we were stuck and our child who is a University under-graduate was going to miss the Exams for that Semester.Thank you GD, the transfer enabled us clear the required amount of money and our child is safe for now.
