Daisy’s story has inspired many people, even though the exact details of her life are still unknown. In the feature, she talked about being patient and hardworking, as she sold salt despite the trials and uncertainties of her life, Philnews reported.
Since her children are too young to understand their social status, Daisy has been forced to sell her leave them early to peddle salt for a living. Despite this, she knew that there is a way out for them from this difficult life, and was determined to achieve this for her children.
After selling her house to work abroad, Daisy worked as a domestic worker in Hong Kong to support her family. During this phase of her life, she felt that she was very fortunate to have worked for her second boss who treated her as part of their family.
Eventually, their lives started to improve. Daisy was able to build a five-story home. She also has an apartment rental business.
“Ngayon, nakapagpatayo na ako ng 5-storey building. May apartment na kami, may alahas at pera na rin. Hindi po talaga ako makapaniwala na magiging ganito ang buhay ko! (Now, I have my own 5-storey home. We have an apartment business, jewelry, and money to support ourselves. I wouldn’t have guessed that my life would turn out this way!),” she said.
