When we were single doing our businesses because there was no responsibilities as this. As additional children are being added that is additional responsibilities which cannot be passed on to someone else. It was in this position that we give birth to your elder siblings. Six


Months after you were given birth to, there was a coup detat in the republic and the military accuse the politicians of misappropriation of funds, embezzlements, and other things, therefore they claim that they will change the currencies of the island within seven days,

To play their cards and they have played it well, because some of them have carried the money through the porous borders to the neighboring republics where they have gone into agreement with some people who helped them to change the money, some who could not
