An 11-year old fish cracker vendor named Charry became trending on social media and inspired a lot of people after paying the money she borrowed to help her sister who is sick.
On Facebook, Bernard Cheng, the man who lent the money worth Php 1,000. Based on the lengthy statement, he lauded the female fish vendor for paying the money even if he knew that she is bound by financial constraint.
According to Bernard: “I gave her the money with the impression that it’s a loan. Why? Ayaw ko kasi mamihasa siya. Ayaw ko dumating iyong time na maging milking station ako. But deep inside, I don’t really have any intention anymore of asking it back.”
Not expecting anything in return, the fish vendor shocked him when she returned the money she borrowed.
Guess what? She was holding a blue bill (1k bill) and handing it to me. She is returning what she owed. My goodness, here was an 11 year old girl na may palabra de honor. Here was an 11 year old girl who behaves better than some high falluting english speaking guys who talks a lot but couldn’t pay their utangs.
In the end, he returned the half of the money she borrowed to serve as an important lesson.
I decided to give her back half of the amount (again para di sya mamihasa). But the other half i intend to set aside for her again when her need arises. Or if no need arises i will return the amount to her for her Christmas angpao.
Alamo Charry, i have always admired your fighting spirit. But now i respect you with my all my heart because you know what? MARUNONG KA MAGBAYAD NG UTANG.
Thank you for again inspiring me.”
