We remember a disabled soldier who decided to grow guavas in Northern Mindanao after he was discharged from the army. He was able to produce a lot of fruits. At first, he brought his harvest to the public market by the sacks. There were very few buyers, however. Many of his fruits remained unsold.
Then he thought of something bright. His brother-in-law was a sweeper in the bus station where passengers wait for the next trip. The guava grower asked his brother-in-law to display his guavas on a small table at the station. Lo and behold! His guavas became best sellers. His brother-in-law sliced some of the fruits and packed them in transparent plastic ready for eating or bringing home. One pack only cost P10 so it was very affordable. Of course, the unsliced fruits also sold well.
