Samoa is not poor, says street vendors

Well its about being independent and industrious – no matter what you sell or the quality of it, the offer is there.

Let the customer take it or leave it but the important part of it is they are doing an honest living and I admire that courage and workmanship.

Its not only in one country only, its everywhere in other countries, individuals make a living by selling.

Take my hat off for such people like these. Even industrial countries, the richer countries started of this way at some stage.

All they need is some government legislation to empower them so people will not damage their goods or cheat them or harass them in public, and most importantly have a place for them to sell apart from fresh produce in markets.

Well done boys.
