The man mentioned the minimum and maximum number of gallons he produces daily. Let's go with a minimum = of 10 gallons during the dry season. (20 - 25 during the rainy season). Each gallon sells at 7K.
A day during dry season = 70k. A week during dry season = 490K.
Even if someone can consistently earn 50K per day for five years, what is 25m? That is the mathematics you wanted to see.
I am not from South East, but South-South. I grew up in a typical village with many palm wine tappers. In my community/state, palm wine is less expensive than in Igboland because we tap raffia palm trees, not palm oil trees. Yet more than 60% of the palm wine tappers in my community built nice/big block houses and sent their kids to good secondary schools in the 80s/90s. 2 of them, their kids were among the 1st set of university graduates from my village.
In Nigeria today, it is possible to hide under any trade to commit a crime. That is why we see red flags everywhere whenever someone in a "lowly" business is seen with things we think are the exclusive rights of the high and mighty.
Hard work and consistency still pay!
