Chundey Heywood will be able to furnish her living room, having won the grand prize in the Jamaica Money Market Brokers Money Transfer (JMMB MT) promotion. She won a room make-over, valued at up to J$250,000, from Courts Jamaica (Limited) courtesy of JMMB MT.

After hearing the good news, Heywood said, "I feel very excited and blessed to start off the New Year as a winner. This is a great surprise for me because I was in the process of trying to furnish my newly built house, and my living room was my next project for this year."

With this start, Heywood said she can now focus on outfitting the other rooms, including her bedrooms.

The repeat JMMB MT client explained that her good fortune was influenced by her dislike for joining lines during the holiday period. JMMB Money Transfer gives me the option to receive my money from overseas with the deposit in my bank account, and I feel safe about my money because I receive text messages and emails when the transfer arrives," she said.

The promotion, which ran between November 16, 2015 and January 2, also awarded 14 parish prizes of a tablet to each winner. The winners of the promotion were randomly selected from clients who received either intra-island or inbound transactions from any of JMMB MT's eight overseas remittance partners or 46 intra-island agents during the promotional period.

Sharon Gibson, general manager at JMMB MT, said they were happy to reward their clients in this way, while thanking them for choosing the institution as a remittance partner.

JMMB Money Transfer, though a smaller player in the local remittance market, provides several options for individuals to send money to Jamaica, via its international partners, from over 80 countries worldwide including: Europe, The Bahamas, United Kingdom, USA, Canada, Curacao, St Maarten, and Aruba.
