|I Interviewed 3 Pure Water Sellers In Central Area Abuja by Loadedcity: 11:41am On May 22, 2016|
I interviewed 3 pure water sellers in central area Abuja and according to them, sometimes it takes about 6 hours to sell 20 sachets of water which amounts to a total of N200. . From the N200, the profit is only about N40. . As the pure water sellers have to pay the wholesalers their money back as well as cover the price for ice block which was used to cool the water. The long And short of it is that some of them make only N40 In 6 hours of hustling under the hot sun, risking their lives on major express roads and always at the mercy of the environmental protection board who whip them with cane when caught, burst their water sachets to the ground and fine them N5,000. . As if that isn't bad enough, when passengers and drivers reach the traffic stops, they prefer to dash N100, N200 Or even N500 to beggars and fake sufferers who sometimes make about N1,500 a day doing nothing but begging, leaving them richer, luckier and safer than the pure water sellers who are young entrepreneurs serving the larger community with their trade, and trying to make ends meet. . So when next you are at a traffic stop, please: . . 1. Dash the pure water seller money instead. 2. Buy pure water to patronise them and if the change is (N10, Or even N20, you can leave it with them) 3. Say something nice to them. Greet them, encourage them. 4. Slow down, don't knock them down. 5. Even if you wont buy the pure water, if they ask you to buy, rather than ignoring them and facing front as if they are not humans, say thank you to them.

Those kind of job ain't easy at all. Especially those who sell in traffic. They are really trying.

They way those guys maneuver through traffic to make sales really baffles me. They are always prone to accidents ad road mishaps.
I'm not a saint oo, but I respect the dignity in their labour. I have never failed to pay for anything i have bought form them...
Even if the driver refuses to stop, i would threaten to alight, or throw the money out through the window.
Much respect to their hussle

Nice one, OP.
There is a woman who sells fruits close to where I stay. She is quite aged but very nice and always offer a smile no matter what. Personally, I don't argue price with her and I make sure I patronize her every week.
Everyone has or would have a story to tell, just make sure you are in the good part of their story.
