An old woman has become a viral sensation after she was seen in a TikTok video hustling in a market.

At the moment the video was recorded, the woman didn’t have customers, so she was sitting alone.

Determined woman who sells fish goes viral

She looked unhappy as her face was very mournful as no one came to her table to buy as at that time.

The person who posted the video encouraged people to patronise old women who come out to hustle despite their age.

The appeal reads:

“Anytime you see them in the market, just patronise them. They are not looking for money to buy expensive jewelry or clothe. They just want to feed their children.”

Meanwhile, the video has sparked emotional reactions from TikTok users.
