An old tricycle driver is making waves on social media after he set up a mini “sari-sari” inside the vehicle.

Old Tricycle Driver has Sari-Sari Store in Vehicle

Have you ever noticed how there are so many people who would say that they did bad things because life is harsh and they’re poor?

Well, that’s really just an excuse.

There are still so many people out there who are also experiencing difficulties, yet they are able to find a way to make their situation better – without resorting to doing bad things.

Take for instance this old tricycle driver who found a way to earn additional income while he’s driving.

This clever driver used the space in front of the tricycle’s passenger side as a mini sari-sari store. It’s actually quite impressive.

Kaya wag nyong sasabihin na walang paraan. Dahil kahit gaano kahirap ang buhay, basta’t may adhikain tayong magsikap sa araw-araw, makakaraos din tayo,” netizen Allana Abbiegail captioned the photo she shared on Facebook.

The old tricycle driver was later identified as Tatay Crisostomo.

It turned out that the front section of the passenger seat wasn’t the only spot that Tatay Crisostomo uses for selling food. Aside from the chips, chocolate and biscuits at the front section, he also has a cooler with various items, including softdrinks and mineral water, set up at the back of the motorcycle’s pillion seat.

We’re quite impressed by the setup. Good luck, Tatay Crisostomo!

How Much Capital Do You Need for a Sari-Sari Store?

You can open a mini sari-sari store for Php50,000, but you can also start a sari-sari store with a small capital.

Some entrepreneurs have even begun theirs for a few thousands of pesos, but simply tried to roll the capital and grow their business. Others found help from Growsari.
