WATCH: Elderly fruit vendor struggles amid boom of online sellers

As the pandemic forces people to stay indoors, some vendors shift to selling their products online. But for 62-year-old Dominador Jimeno, a fruit and vegetable farmer in Alfonso, Cavite, online selling has taken a toll on his livelihood. 

With more customers going online to buy goods, elderly vendors like Jimeno who can’t adapt to the digital world lose income every day. 

In contrast, 28-year-old vendor Christina Mendoza shares how her resilience kicked into high gear after her husband lost his job. Using only her mobile phone and data connection, she started her online selling business when community quarantine measures were imposed.

Rappler’s Jeff Digma follows their story in this short documentary.
