“I cannot imagine this real. This money will help me a lot. I plan on starting a shop where I can trade food items like rice, sugar, salt and many others consumer goods.” Tumuheki said.

Tumuheki went on to add that because of COVID 19, she had resorted to quitting her job and starting something else but she did not have the capital to start her dream business.

“My life has drastically changed for the better” said an excited Tumuheki in praise of the MTN MoMoNyabo promotion
