Tomato, pepper, onion and vegetable sellers in Jos have proven that traders of these food items are successful people who are able to buy lands and build houses.
The women leader of Jos-Jarawa tomatoes market by Cele Bridge in Jos, Ruth Izang, said market women are hard-working people whose commitment to their trade does not falter, Vanguard reports.
Legit.ng gathers that Izang said some of the traders would not have achieved what they have without their trade.
She said: "We work hand in hand with the farmers, and we are grateful to God for giving them the strength to farm and supply the products for us to sell."
According to Izang, the market women have also been able do other things through daily contributions and monthly contributions.
She said: "For the daily contribution you can put in any amount and collect your money at the end of the month, while the collectors/keepers who records your daily keep in a card removes one day contribution from your money for his/her services before handing the rest over to you."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a 30-year-old mother of 12 in Kaduna state identified as Zainab Hassan delivered quadruplets without healthcare.
When Zainab went into labour, she delivered her babies at home herself because the nearest hospital is far away, and she can only reach it via commercial canoes and then bike.
The mother of 12 who has had twins in the course of childbearing never went for antenatal for all the pregnancies she had carried.
She said: “I have been giving birth to twins in this village without going for any medical checks. This time I delivered all four kids at my husband’s house without any assistance from anyone."
Zainab said she went through serious pains and stress, adding that it is not really easy giving birth to quadruplets in a village without any support.
