You help Mrs. Smith for 2 hours by digging up her garden. As the recipient of the service, Mrs. Smith credits you with 2 hours. The Time Bank sees your exchange and awards you, the service provider, with an additional 2 hours from the Time Bank account, giving you a total of 4 hours for helping Mrs. Smith.
