“OK,” he says eventually, “I will give you your money back.

“And also promise that you will cut each loaf into quarters for your kotas,” speaks up Jabu.

Mr Mkhize promises that he will. Then he clears his throat and says loud enough for everyone to hear, “I also promise that I will add more atchar and more chips to my kotas.”

Mr Mkhize did indeed add extra chips and atchaar to his kotas.Soon more children were buying from him, and his shop started doing well. He was even able to hire someone to help him.

Now there is a healthy competition between Mr Mkhize and Mr Motaung, and everyone is happy.

  9. Quiet interestińg story well Mr Mkhiźe was so stingy,he is that type of a person who wants to bring more money on a small thing.I’ve learnt that in order for your business to grow and generate money you should always aim țo render best seŕvices to your customers and meet their satisfaction.
