Couple Sells Batchoy Despite Financial Struggles to Support Children’s Education

Dedicated Couple Earns Praise for Selling Batchoy to Support Children and Grandchildren’s Education

A dedicated couple continues to sell batchoy behind their small store despite facing financial struggles to support their children’s education.

Education is like a key that unlocks the door to a world of opportunities. It is not just about books and classrooms, it is a journey that shapes our minds, opens our hearts, and builds the foundation for a brighter future.

Education gives us the superpower of knowledge. It provides the skills and tools we need to chase our dreams and turn them into reality.


Recently, in the town of Sipalay, Rose and Dominador, a resilient couple is driven by a deep desire to support their seven grandchildren and four children, two of whom are still studying – one in high school (Grade 12) and the other in their third year of college.

The family’s home suffered severe damage during the onslaught of Typhoon Odette. Despite receiving financial assistance from the government, Rose and Dominador found themselves compelled to start a batchoy and ihaw-ihaw business

The reason behind these business ventures is the couple’s commitment to ensuring that their children and grandchildren can continue their education. Their determination to provide for their family pushed them to enter the world of business.


Rose and Dominador find joy in the fact that their business allows them to financially support their children and grandchildren’s education.

Handom kogid nga makatapos sa pag eskwela mga kabataan ko kag akon apo, kami daan wala kami tinapusan kag kabudlay kay asta nalang kami diri,” Rose said.

(Our greatest wish is for our children and grandchildren to finish their education. We didn’t have the chance to complete ours because life has been tough for us)

The couple’s commitment to education, despite the challenges they’ve faced, serves as an inspiration for others facing similar hardships.
