Meet Fatai, A MAPOLY Student who washes cars to sponsor his education

This young man has no one to help him but he's doing his best to get ahead. The student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY), Abeokuta, spoke about his current hustle:
"My name is Fatai. People call me "Horror". I am a student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic. I wash cars here for N500. I give my boss N300 and I take N200. I have to do this so that I can pay for school. Every week the lowest amount I save is N7,000. That is after transport and food."

Asked if what he makes is enough to see him through in school expenses, Fatai replied:
"Well at least I'm not begging. You know there's no food for lazy man."
