Hanan Hamid, the 21-year-old Kerala girl who who became a household name earlier in the year after images of her selling fish in her college uniform to support her education is back in business.

Hanan, who faced severe online abuse after her images went viral had been injured in an accident in September. However, according to a report in The News Minute, the spirited girl who donated 1 lakh from her own savings to the Kerala flood victims has bounced back to business. And this time, she's got a customised, Tata Ace van.

True to her quirky sense of humor, Hanan has named her new venture 'Viral'. The van was inaugurated on Friday by actor Salim Kumar. She will starr going selling fish in Pellupaddi after a prolonged break.

Hanan had faced intense trolling after images of her selling fish in Kochi's Thammanam market went viral. Many accused her of being a fraud after she started receiving donations from well-wishers. It was from this fund that she decided to donate towards the Chief Minister's relief fund during the debilitating floods that recently occurred in the state.

Meanwhile, social media has reacted positively to Hanan's new job and also appreciated the name she chose for her venture.
