Fruit sellers in Nigeria’s Enugu metropolis are presently making good sales business due to the current heat wave. According to the News Agency of Nigeria, most of the fruit sellers have consequently raised their daily supply to meet the increase in demand. Some of them confirmed that there was a boost in daily sales and income from the business.
Ogochukwu Nwoye, a banana seller at Garki, said she had recorded great improvement in sales since the hot season commenced. Nwoye said that her fruit business witnessed a lull during the rainy season, adding that it recorded a boost after the rainy season. “It is usually financially difficult for me during the rainy season because I hardly finish selling my bananas in a day and people find it difficult to patronise fruit sellers during the rainy season. But with the hot weather, I am always busy attending to customers,” she told theeagleonline.com.ng.
