When you don’t want to live in a mansion, don’ t buy a town house in Njoengo.
This is a warning, not an ultimatum.
“Njoenga is the worst place in the country to live if you’re a migrant.
You can buy a bungalow in Njeongo, but that’s not good enough,” said one resident, who didn’t want his name published.
But there are other areas of the island where people don’t mind spending their hard-earned money.
There are no signs on the beach that the Njoongos people will stop flaunting the wealth they’ve built up.
In a city where the number of cars and taxis has risen, residents are starting to make their own money, and the new arrivals are becoming increasingly wealthy.
“I used to be poor, but I now have money and I’m going to use it to buy food and clothing,” said Ruyen Tawo, a 31-year-old resident of the capital.
His family owns a shoe shop and has been making a living as a carpenter.
He’s already made his way into the luxury lifestyle of Njoogo.
At one point, Tawoi was making between €3,500 and €5,000 ($4,400 and $6,100) a month, which was well below the median income in Nijeongo.
But as the market has changed and he has more options, Tawsi said he’s starting to get a bit richer.
“Now I’m buying houses and buying restaurants and shops and things like that.
I feel like a real millionaire,” he said.
The Njoogos don’t have a history of wealth, but the new influx of people is creating a new wave of local wealth.
One of the biggest changes has been the construction of a new shopping mall and shopping centre on the island.
Some locals are also starting to use their money to build a new hotel, which is expected to open this year.
The Njogos are also making inroads into tourism, which has boomed in recent years.
Last year, the island had around 8,000 people visiting Njoangos every day.
By the end of this year, that number is expected grow to 13,000.
People like Jokal Kjartman, who has been living in Njaengo for 18 years, said the new wave in tourists is just the beginning.
“We’ve had visitors from abroad come here and do business, which we don’t know what to do with them,” he told AFP.
Tourism is an important part of the Njogo economy, as it brings in money to the island that would otherwise be spent on the city, and that’s one of the reasons the population is growing.
So what does that mean for the future?
“People are now very worried about the future of their homes, their jobs, their family life,” said Tawoo.
And as people like Tawoos work harder to make ends meet, the market is growing, too.
With prices rising, he said, the new people are becoming richer and the demand for their services is growing too.
“When people come to Njangos, they want to buy a villa, a beachfront house, they’re coming to Njoongo to live and earn money, but now they’re looking for more.”
If they can’t get that, they’ll just leave Njoone.
“The problem with living in a market is that the residents have to work harder and harder to stay afloat.
When Njongo was in decline, some residents were forced to take jobs that paid below minimum wage.
But with the market booming, those people are now leaving.
That has meant fewer jobs and more people moving out of the city.
Now, many of the locals are hoping that they will be able to find a job when they leave Njngo.”
It will be hard to find jobs when people are leaving.
They’re going to leave because they can make money elsewhere,” said Kjartsman.
If that happens, it’s not just the people who are leaving, but also the businesses that depend on the local economy.
Rui Kwon, who runs a supermarket, is hoping that he’ll find a place to store his goods.”
The market has helped the business, but we need to find somewhere else to store it.
So we’ll have to find other places to store our goods,” he explained.
Many people are not even sure where to start when they want a new start in their life.”
There are so many people who don’t even know where to go,” said Dari
