What did you spend your token payment on?
I spent my first transfer on repaying a loan of 7000 Kes and did a shopping of household items and foodstuff of 3000 Kes.

When I received the transfer, I felt so much at peace because I was so worried on how I would be able to repay back the loan I had taken to pay school fees.
