Hope had enquired what he wished to be added to the delicacy to which the man responded that he didn't know.

The excited man appreciated her for the gesture with a promise to repay Hope's kindness.
"I sent the order and "ADDED SEMI RIPE PLANTAIN OF JUST Ghc6"...... .... ..he reached out to me and was so excited and grateful for the fact that I thought it wise to add Plantain to his order. He said he doesn't take it for granted and that he owes me...I told him he owes me nothing."
The client linked her up for a big job
Days after the incident with the client, Hope said he reached out to inform her that his office was organising a classy end of the year dinner party strictly for 250 staff members.
