Amit Kumar, 35, India

“When I really needed help, it came from my childhood friend.”

“I moved to the UK a few years ago, which was really exciting, but far more challenging than I’d anticipated. Especially financially. Moving into my first flat was so expensive. I was panicking because the first month’s rent and deposit were all due on the same day – and I didn’t quite have enough to cover it.

The only person I knew well enough to ask for help was my best friend Sanjii, who thankfully was over from India visiting family at the time. He stepped in and lent me the money without hesitation. As soon as I was back on my feet financially, I repaid him. I used WorldRemit, a fast online money transfer company, as I knew the money would be with him almost instantly. I’ll never be able to thank Sanjii enough for his help.”
