Juunju Warra Elder Mrs Ella Woibo was ‘restless’ stressing about paying off a water pump for the farm house and came to MPower for advice.

“My husband and I are on a pension and were worried about paying off the water pump. I thought about MPower and that I might get help, so I did.

“I was so excited that I got help to make the payment. I didn’t need to worry about the payments coming out, I could just sit back happy knowing the payments were coming out of my account each fortnight (via direct debit).

“I feel good, proud and happy now that I have no more bills and the payments are all done so I have money for myself to spend. I was able to budget around the payments. Me and my husband managed fine on the money we had.

“I learned that I could stick to my payments and now I want to buy items for my house for after the renovation. I’m looking forward to having my house renovated and decorating it with new items.”

In the meantime Mrs Woibo is living life to the full, enjoying time with the ladies at Strong Families Handicraft and having smoko and lunch, and yarning. “I like the sewing.”

“I’m just enjoying life one day at a time. I’d like to continue clan outings, and spending time with family and friends, and to keep attending church and fellowship.

“I enjoy singing hymns and reading the church booklet and listening to the words of Pastor David Spanagel.”

Mrs Woibo, 82, says she and her husband, 87, are blessed to be married for 64 years this year.
