Local traders go through a lot in nigeria, here is how  #Arewapublisize

Most times when we walk into big malls,🏦 boutiques👝👡👗👖 and supermarkets🏭 we never question their prices.💰 We pay exactly what we see on the price tags and even hand out tips to the staff.

😋 But the moment we are out of these shops🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️ and want to buy bananas🍌 and or peanuts🌰 from a street vendor, our bargaining power rises to the roof.😢

A poor woman😪 with hungry children👩‍👧‍👦 at home tells you banana is #100 😳 She even takes her time to explain how difficult😨 it was for her to buy it from the market. 

But we insist that if it's not #50, we are not buying.😭

Some of us even step back into our cars and drive away.😢 But because "half a bread is better than none", the woman is forced to run🏃🏻‍♀️ after you and sell at no gain.🙊.

 In her heart she cries,😭 she's worried about how she'll survive with her children.👩‍👧‍👦 She silently reassures herself that "It's well" since she is not returning home with the bananas.🍌 Her motivation is God will definitely provide some other day.😊

Meanwhile you drive off and happily,😁 chew the luscious 🍌 banana.🧉😋 Take some seconds to think about this.

Am always moved to tears😭😭 when I see people who genuinely and helplessly hawk petty goods to feed and survive for that day, especially women and children.

Please🛐 don't bargain too hard with small vendors.🙊 They do business not to buy designer bags,💼 trendy phones,📱 watches,⌚ shoes👟👠 or designer clothes,👘 but to FEED the family and CARE for their children👩‍👧‍👦 in school.📚

This touched me😎 when I realised it... so lets CHANGE our ways.🙏🛐 It's another way of spending on humanity in the will of God.

 "He who gives to the poor lends to his Maker"

Try putting smiles on peoples faces . It pays to be good.


Have a good night rest❤❤
