The everyday vendor who does not only sell fruit but also offers the strength of her spirit. Respect.
Manang came by everyday to offer some fruits. I always buy from her - bananas, oranges, apples. Each time, we talked about the usual happenings in the market and those she encountered along the street where she passed by. She refused to sit down to have coffee with me. She had to go and get about selling door to door to finish the day with a good collection.
