While many able-bodied people choose to steal from others, this old man makes an honest living to survive.
The Philippines is home to many impoverished families who work try to make ends meet by any means possible. A lot of unemployed people try out busking and peddling in order to get a little money for food and clothing. However, ever since the number of unemployed has been increasing, the number of crimes has increased as well. More people resort to stealing from others, instead of working hard for their money. But this peddler is different from those people—despite his age.
User Francis Guerrero Edralin saw this old man selling snacks inside a bus and decided to share his story on Facebook. Though the old man was only allowed to enter the bus for a short time, Edralin was able to ask how old he was. He is 85 years old.
Edralin was amazed by the man’s honest way of living, and decided to help him out by buying out all of his products! Not only did this Good Samaritan buy all of the old’s man products, but he also told him to ‘keep the change’.
Though this amount may not be as big for other people out there, Edralin’s purpose was to help the man in any way he could—and I bet the old man was extremely happy with this miracle in his life!
Edralin also added that the old man is usually seen around United San Pedro, and urged other netizens to buy from him if ever they come across him.
