New millionaires Tanya Curniffe of St Thomas and Nathoyia Craig from St Catherine, both winners in the JN Money Transfer 'Roll Like A Millionaire' promotion, maintain that education will be their priority, as the windfall is an opportunity for them to rise above the economic challenges.

The November and December winners have decided to use the majority of their winnings to fund educational ventures for themselves and for family members.

"My son's taking GSAT (Grade Six Achievement Test) in March; and, he says he needs funds to go to Harvard University," Curniffe related in a jovial manner, as she accepted her cheque at the JN Money Services Limited headquarters in Kingston, recently.

She outlined that she will be using some of the funds for immediate family benefits; however, the majority of the funds will be saved towards his education.

Similarly, Craig will use the funds to finance her training as a nurse; and, expressed gratitude to the popular money transfer company for the chance to win the cash, which will go toward improving her own life, and that of her grandmother's.

"I am certainly going to use this money for some home improvement for my grandmother. I have also been trying to get into nursing school; and, now that I have the funds. I will use the money to start my education," she explained. "And, although I have an agricultural background, nursing is my passion."

The two women and eight other weekly prize winners, received the chance to access their rewards by using their JN Money Transfer Card, a card which functions similar to a debit card. It is provided free of cost by JNMS' parent organisation the Jamaica National Building Society and is only available for use in Jamaica.

Leesa Kow, general manager, JNMS said while the aim of the promotion is to reward customers; and to help many to access the funds to establish their goals and dreams, it was also designed to encourage more customers to use this modern and convenient way to access remittances.

"We are constantly being exposed to new technologies; and, therefore, we need to encourage more of our customers to adapt to these technologies and expand their means of access," Miss Kow affirmed.
