The survey can either be filled online at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VFJ2XWH or by completing this word document and submitting it to her via email to email@example.com.

That M-Pesa is fraud to diasporas as they do not match the current currency conversion rate. It's constant while the dollar increases thus your receiver gets less money.
Maria, M-pesa is a bank robber wearing a bullet vest. They will charge you $7, feast on your dollars before they arrive to the recepients, then feast it again when the recepient cash the money. They take too long to make the cash available to the recipient. In fact, they have to beg to get it. Try Moneygram, you won't belief it, $9 do it all, with higher exchange rates and 10 minutes guranteed receipt.
