What did you spend your token payment on?
I used a larger portion of the transfer to pay my two daughters in high school fee. Besides, I paid 1,000 KES tithe.
Describe the moment when you received your money. How did you feel?
The moment I received the transfer, I felt absolutely happy. I went down on my knees as I praise the living God for His kindness.

What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I face in live is that I am not always not in a position to pay my children's school fee on time due to lack of a stable source of income.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when my children are preparing to go to school. They are my joy and when they go to school I feel i'm doing my responsibilities as their parent.
What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money is such a blessing to my family and it is going to make us move a huge step towards our well being.
