"While at church. I had tears in my eyes. I couldn't imagine my mum roasting plantain in the rain. I kept pondering about it till I posted it on Facebook. A friend from the US reached out to donate to her. 48 hours after I drove back to her to hand her about 250k."

She said the woman burst into tears and said she had been praying that God should send her a helper.

According to Oyinkansola, the woman reached out to her staff a month later saying she was no longer under a shade, adding that she used the money to fix her uncompleted building and sells from there.

Tweeps were impressed with Oyinkansola's kind gesture and they flooded the comment section of her post with their thoughts.
