Shakeema is a 22-year-old single mother of a 7-year-old daughter. She uses guaranteed income payments to pay for necessities like her car, rent and clothes for her daughter. She also uses it to cover monthly bills, “I don’t want to worry about my bills.” Before these regular payments, she had to work two jobs, which left little time for her to spend with her daughter. Guaranteed income payments have allowed Shakeema to spend more quality time with her daughter and still have enough to cover the bills.
