It would not be a vending machine if you would not insert something on it(monetary in that case). At pati 2 pesos ipagdadamot mo pa? It would somehow help sa power consumption ng machine.

you can see it as a way to encourage people to use the contraceptive. yung iba kasi jan nahihiya kapag kukuha sila sa municipal health office which involves interaction with a personnel. it can possibly address that problem.
