Bình, 90 years old Kontum, Vietnam
At 90 years old, Bình still cooks and sells peanuts every day on his bicycle. But it’s what he does with the money that makes him so unique.
“Every night, I sell 10kg of boiled peanuts. People see me and they support me by buying the peanuts. I sell them very fast! Everybody does that!” Bình says with a big smile.
Many people in Kontum know what he does with the money so they want to support him.
He explains “I use the money to help people in need. If I see any poor people, I will help them right away. I also have a free Banh Mi (bread) stall opposite to the hospital. Each day, I buy 100 bread rolls, unfortunate people from the hospital come to me and I give them free bread. I can do that thanks to everyone’s support!” Bình says with a big grin.
