They will patronize you. Many of the things they sell is supplied to them by people.

Majority of the vegetable sellers seeks for fresh bitter leaves suppliers because, they are too busy to wash the bitter leaves themselves and their customers needs the washed bitter leaves more than the unwashed ones.

This business is very interesting because people will definitely patronize it. Bean cake (moi moi) and akara is very much loved by many but the stress of preparing it is in the washing. People do not really have the time to wash, grind and start all the process of preparing the bean cake. One of the reason why this business is lucrative is, because grinded things are increased in sizes. Get the beans in bag(s), wash, dry and grind the beans.
