Inspiring "Rags-to-Riches" Business Enterprise - Dingalan, Aurora
In 2005, Helen Fabros of Dingalan, Aurora dreamt of living her life out of poverty. Having P500 left in her pocket, she used it as a starting capital and entered into vegetable vending business. Tireless and determined to win in life, she walks everyday with her bilao (large woven tray) full of vegetables to sell her goods and earn for a living. She never gave up; instead, she took everything as a challenge.

After years of striving, she woke up seeing the fruits of her hard work. Slowly, she was able to invest in her business. Her vegetable vending business was converted into a grocery store and ventured numerous businesses that give her sources of income.

At present, she owns three grocery stores, meat shop, eatery and piggery being co-managed by her family members. She was also able to acquire lots and stalls as her investment. Helen is a real ASKIan model who was able to reach her dreams and be of help to others despite life’s hardships - an inspiration to all

ASKIans and entrepreneurs of this day’s generation.
