In an emerging video, residents of a community get clean water through a dispensing ATM machine.
In the clip shared on Instagram by @saynaija, the interested water buyers approach the water dispensing ATM machine with their ATM cards.

Community where women make money out of wastes
Legit.ng in Nigeria previously reported about a community in Nigeria where women are making money out of waste materials.
With its craft village in Imafon, Ondo state, Durian has been able to expose ladies in rural areas to how they can make crafts of bamboo, skincare products out of cocoa pud husks. They also train women on how to turn fabric waste into bags and clothes.
Durian equips these women with what late South African statesman Nelson Mandela described as the most powerful weapon that can be used to change the world - education.
Their adult literary classes empower women with communication, leadership, teamwork, bookkeeping as well as other knowledge and skills needed to drive change. Children are also not left out as they also provide learning opportunities for them.
