Coconut Vendor Launches Online Services After Arrest in Breach of COVID-19 Orders
Twenty-year-old Marvin Joseph has expanded his business to online services, after arrest for selling coconut water during the coronavirus pandemic.
With the help of good Samaritans, Joseph has paid the $800 fine, after breaching the emergency orders.
Helped by Carlos Reid, Julien Believe and Sherwin Johnson, Joseph launched ‘Marvin’s Coconut Water and Tings.’
Reid garnered public support for payment of the fine, Johnson of Evo Bahamas, created a business Facebook page for Joseph’s company, while Believe, a representative of Aliv Cellphone Network, donated a cellphone to assist with the operation of Joseph’s business.
Instead of selling coconut water on the streest of the Nassau, Joseph can now be seen at the Hope Center, Big Pond Highway, where he offers curbside services.
