What did you spend your token payment on?
When I received my first transfer, I spent it on a sofa set. I wanted for us and our visitors a place to sit since we never had chairs before then. Even if I have not met all my needs yet, I feel very proud to have a place to sit.
Describe the moment when you received your money. How did you feel?
This is amount of money I had never received in my life at once before and therefore the moment I received it, I felt as if I was pregnant with joy.
