SS3 hawker gets help from her customer

The man was haggling about the price of her garden eggs when he learnt that hawking is her livelihood. Moved by what he heard, the man enquired further about her school fees and gave her N20k of the N50k she said it cost.

His kind action triggered the girl to kneel in the rain. After some seconds, she went into the shop and knelt before the man to show gratitude.

Mercy, who spoke Igbo, hailed the man for showing kindness to the girl without taking advantage of her.

She seized the opportunity to encourage people to be diligent in their work.
