Delia, a single mother from the Philippines, land into an unexpected business that gives her and her kids a fortune.
She never thought that going into a business will lead to her success. With her work, she is unable to provide all the increasing needs of her family since her husband left her and their children. “Halos wala kaming makain noong araw. ‘Yung magkasakit nga lang ang mga anak ko, wala kaming pambiling gamot,” she said” So, she thought that having a business will help her provide on their daily and emergency needs.
The business started from small, “Halos P12,000 lang ‘yung puhunan ng lahat nang nag-umpisa ako. Sa loob ng sampung buwan, naging P60,000,” said Santos. She sells candies and later on had a convenience store to cater her products.
But what makes her rich is “Dhels Peanut Butter”, a homemade recipe that most of her customers asked for more.
It all begins when one of Delia’s clients go bankrupt and Delia’s kind heart led on buying what is left. She bought two grinders and 5 sacks of peanut which lead her to her famous peanut butter.
The 5 sacks of peanuts become 250 sacks and make a profit of 5M pesos per month. Despite being a single mother, Delia still managed to make not only a living but a fortune for her kids.
Dhel’s Peanut Butter ingredients:
3 kilos of peanuts
1/4 kilo butter milk
1. Mix sugar with peanuts
2. Add butter milk.
3. Add salt
4. Mix ingredients, grind peanuts.
(3 kilos of peanuts can make eight bottles of peanut butter)
“Hindi ako nalulungkot ngayon, natutulog akong nakangiti at masaya ako. Nagtagumpay ako at mabibigyan ko ng magandang buhay ang mga anak ko. Sila kasi ang dahilan kaya nagsikap ako, hindi naman ang asawa ko,” she said.
