Waitress builds house for parents
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a young Lagos waitress has set social media buzzing after constructing a bungalow for her parents. A Facebook user identified as Innocent Tino shared the news on the social media platform as he urged netizens to stop complaining and rather start saving.
He said the 25-year-old lady did it courtesy of her salary and tips she put into her ajo - a Yoruba word for group savings or contributions. Tino shared his chat with the lady where she revealed that she turned the breadwinner since the demise of her dad. She also stated that the group savings helped her train her siblings in school as well as set up a hair business.
It was also from there she got money to organise her late dad's funeral. When Legit.ng contacted Tino to enquire how the lady was able to save such money in the face of her responsibilities, he replied: "She said she worked for 2yrs and did ajo (meaning contribution in English) as a sacrificial means."
