Omar Johnson, 42-year-old farmer and chef, of Cascade, Hanover and Omera Belinfante, 21, a student from the bread basket parish of St. Elizabeth, are the lucky winners of the Jamaica ‘60 & Boasy’ with JN Money promotion. Persons became eligible for the promotion by sending or receiving a JN Money transfer during the period August 1 to December 24.

Mr. Johnson, who is a single father to a 12-year-old, says he is overwhelmed with happiness, as one of his greatest wishes was to own a vehicle. He noted that this is a win for both himself and his daughter. The transaction that made him a winner was received from his aunt who lives in the United States.

“This is one of the biggest accomplishments in my entire life. This is going to change my life around,” he said as he smiled. “Sometimes my daughter finds it hard to get a drive to come home from school so now I will be able to take her and pick her up.”

He added that he will be able to use the SUV to assist him with transporting goods as he normally has to take a taxi to bring them into the town to sell them.

Mr. Johnson says the near five-hour journey from Lucea via public transport to attend the grand handover on January 6, which took place at the KIA showroom, located on Oxford Road in Kingston, was well worth it.

Similarly, Miss Belinfante, who just recently applied for her driver’s licence, say she is really excited as she believes that winning a vehicle from JN Money is a blessing.

The Human Resource Management major said that she is not an outdoor person but now that she has won the car she will be taking trips and take her grandmother out as well as to her clinic appointments.

Horace Hines, general manager of JN Money Services, says while the company is in the money tranfers business, JN Money is also in the “people business” as they help to keep families connected through money transfers.

The vehicles come with a full tank of gas, one-year auto insurance from JN General Insurance and one-year roadside assistance from Jamaica Automobile Association.
