  • A 58-year-old Nigerian woman in Bayelsa state, Rose Nwokocha, is seeking help for a change of situation
  • The woman said that despite the fact that she is very good at tiling, people do not like giving her work because of her old age
  • As an alternative to working labouring jobs, the woman said she could also sell cooking gas if she sees capital for such a business

The story of a 58-year-old woman, Rose Nwokocha, went viral online when a man with the Twitter handle @KingErefitei re-shared pictures of her online.

Rose works as a tiler to support her four kids. Despite her skill, the woman has been having great difficulty in getting a job as prospective clients always complain about her old age.

The 58-year-old woman whose story was initially shared Niger Delta Insider, stated that due to the fact that she started having kids relatively late, her children are still financially dependent on her.

Rose is a hard worker

According to Rose, she does not shy away from hard work as much as it would bring in money. Considering her age, she was asked what other thing she would like to do if she support comes her way. The woman said:

"I will like to have a gas shop where people can buy the content in little KGs. I will love if people can support me in achieving this dream."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian lady, @bossit_, was amazed when she saw a very young boy, Jonathan, working as a tiling labourer in her compound.

She filmed him secretly to show her followers. Days after the initial video gathered reactions, the lady properly spoke to the boy, asking some personal questions about his family.
