What did you spend your token payment on?
I spent my second transfer on paying school fee for my child in high school with the entire amount. I feel very much relieved now that I managed to pay the better part of the fee arrears.
Describe the moment when you received your money. How did you feel?
I was so happy when I received the transfer because I had never received such a good amount of cash in my life.

What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Inadequate resources to build a house with metal roof, is the biggest hardship we have faced, because this one leaks when it rains.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the mornings, when I'm performing the household chores.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
I feel very happy, because I believe that if I get this money, I intend to use it to clear fee balance for our child in secondary school.
