Buy each day from a different woman to be fair and see if you can help them getting better equipment for FREE.
When you care you TEACH people how to fish, you don't just give them fishes every day "FOR FREE". Yes you help those making an effort when you can but you don't CRIPPLE people by not making them independent. You teach them HOW TO FISH. Giving is not always as helpful as it seems.
Oh this woman I chop ein waakye saa. Ebi nice...
May the Good Lord himself bless the hustles of our mothers and that of our fathers as well. Words can't describe the gratitude I owe my parents.
My mom is one of them
