Motorbike taxi driver Boy supplements his income by selling donuts at the Naklua market.

“Boy,” who worked out of a taxi stand on Soi Phothisan 12 in Naklua, has opened a street-side NK Shop to sell donuts and bread at prices starting at 15 baht.

The donuts are packed and displayed in hygienic covered boxes.

Boy said that since the coronavirus pandemic hit, business has plummeted. Most of his customers were bar employees, and while bars were allowed to reopen in July, many haven’t, leaving him too few passengers to earn a living.

Now, instead of making as little as 100 baht a day driving his bike, he can serve up sweets. He predicts his fortunes will rise like the yeast he uses.

Delicious donuts for only 15 baht.
