A Grab driver and government employee couple launched a poultry farm to earn some side income. They would later share their success story on CFO PESO SENSE, a financial literacy page on Facebook.
From Workers to Business Owners
According to the post on CFO PESO SENSE, the wife works as government employee at their municipal hall for 6 years while the husband has worked as Grab operator/driver since 2017. They only have 1 child.
The husband has long dreamed of opening a poultry business. This would soon become a reality when the ASF issue hit Luzon. A friend who owns a huge piggery farm lost many pigs and his business. Going bankrupt, this friend offered his huge farm to the couple for use in their dream of owning a poultry business.
“Eversince mahilig na talaga ang asawa ko sa pagmamanok. Gusto nya daw magkaroon ng bisnes na makakatulong samin upang guminhawa ang buhay balang araw. Kaya naisip nya magpundar nalang ng LAYER CHICKEN POULTRY FARM.🐔🐔🐔 Mga inahen o manok na nangingitlog ng sa ganun ay makapagbenta din kami ng mga fresh table eggs.”
“As now today meron kami 3k RTL Chicken at 6k Growing RTL. Laking tulong na din naman dahil mayroon cyang kaibigan na mayroong malawak na lupa o farm na dati ay piggery. Sa kadahilanan, nagkaroon ng ASF ang mga baboy ay hininto nila ang piggery at nabakante ng ang pigpen ng ilang buwan. Inoffer eto ng kaibigan nya na gamitin nila at magput-up ng isang negosyo.
Dumating na nga ang A&F POULTRY FARM… and selling WHOLESALE FARM FRESH EGGS!!! 🥚🥚🥚 Yahoooo, am I dreaming??? 🤔 NO I’m not.”
The wife shares their story on CFO PESO SENSE, saying that they never thought this dream would come true. They had only seen stories like this on social media, but are grateful that through this inspiration, they were able to reach for their dreams.
