What did you spend your token payment on?
I spent my first transfer to buy fishing nets that my husband uses in his fishing business in order to fend for our family. I paid my children school fees with part of that transfer.
Describe the moment when you received your money. How did you feel?
I was at a friend's funeral when I received my money and I was very happy.

What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
My biggest hardship is paying school fees for my children, I face it tough since I don't own any tangible business to facilitate so neither am I engaged anywhere for any pay.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Mornings are my happiest part of the day, when my children are in school and not sent back home for school fees.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
It means time for change, I have already foreseen a brighter future. I plan to embark on some business that would earn me profit to address other needs too.
