Elderly Vendor Was Able to Send Her Kids to School by Selling Steamed Mackerel

HARDWORKING LOLA – An elderly vendor from Laguna was able to send her children to school by selling ‘steamed tunlingan’.

Lola Pastora Yldelso from Laguna was able to send her children to school by selling delicious steamed tulingan (mackerel). Through her hard work and perseverance in selling tulingan rice, Lola Pastora was able to provide for her family’s education and acquire a house and land.

However, like other business owners, she faced great challenges during the pandemic, especially since she is a senior citizen.

In the Kapuso show “Pera Paraan,” it was mentioned that many people know Lola Pastora in the market of Santa Rosa, Laguna because of her delicious tulingan. Aside from being tasty, even the fish bones can be eaten because of its soft texture.

Lola Pastora learned how to cook and sell tulingan rice from her aunt when she was still a young lady. Eventually, she had her own stall in the market, and her customer base grew even more.

She is the one who sells, prepares, and cooks the tulingan. Lola Pastora earns P7,000 a week from her business.

When the pandemic hit, Lola Pastora’s resilience was put to the test because she couldn’t go out and sell her goods. The money she had saved slowly dwindled. However, like other business owners, she did not give up in the face of adversity.

Despite running out of stock, it was important for Lola Pastora to keep her business going by using her capital wisely. Since her earnings were just enough for their basic needs, Lola Pastora received a small gift from the show, so she could have capital to draw from when she needed it.
