A Nigerian lady has taken the act of piggy banking to another level.
In a video she shared on Facebook, the Nigerian lady identified as Angela Nwosu said she had got the piggy bank from one Chidinma in the second week of February and started her saving journey.
Angela, in the video broke the box and counted all her savings which happened to be all in dollars.
Explaining why it is so, she said that being one that does most of her transaction cashless she resorted to taking money from her husband's wallet.
The money she saved up for a month totalled $2750 (N1,048,300.00).
Her post in part reads:
"I got this kolo from Chidimma in second week of February, this is what I managed to save in one month. 2,750 dollars, that’s more than a million naira in black market rate. If I saved it in naira, the kolo will definitely be filled up.
"I am that wife that doesn’t have access to cash, I can stay a month without setting eyes on it, I only do transfers, you can imagine how difficult it was for me to do this kolo challenge in just a month.
"My husband saw the day I posted the kolo and made sure to hide all his naira notes, but kept only dollars in his wallet, thinking I won’t near that one.
" It was the spirit that whispered to me, after a week of not putting any money in my kolo, to start stealing the dollars little by little, all money is money."
The video stirred reactions from many of her followers and friends with many surprised she did all her savings in foreign currency.
Davidson Nwosu commented:
"Poverty is just a bas*tard, see money most us have not saved or made in a year, someone just save it within a month. Abeg where una dey see this money Bikokwa, make u, Angela Nwosu give us updated e get why."
