Antipolo Mayor Andrea Ynares shares inspiring story of new sari-sari store owner

Apr 23, 2022 @ 9:24

Antipolo City Mayor Andrea Ynares is proud of the inspiring story of one her own constituents who was able to overcome challenges to earn a living.

In a Facebook post, Ynares shared the journey of Mary Grace Boiser, who received livelihood assistance to put up a sari-sari store and a bigasan.

Boiser is a single parent who used to earn a living selling pandesal.

She contracted Hansen’s disease or leprosy in 2012, and lost her left leg and the tips of some of her fingers due to complications from the illness.

But she continued do all she could to care for her child.

Boiser was very happy to have been given the pangkabuhayan package, said Ynares.

It includes three cavans of rice and sari-sari store items such as instant noodles, canned goods, condiments, biscuits, coffee, gatas, chips, candies, shampoo, toothpastes, fabric detergents, fabric conditioners, dishwashing liquids, laundry detergents, a weighing scale and sando bags, she said.

She said Boiser showed that we should not let challenges deter us, and that there is always hope.

She also advised Boiser to take care of her business for the sake of her family.

It’s a new chapter in her life!

“Si Mary Grace Boiser, 30 years old, isang single parent at mula Brgy. Inarawan, ay naninirahan sa gilid ng sapa kung saan wala rin siyang pirming trabaho, at ang tanging pinagkakakitaan niya ay ang paglalako ng pandesal sa lansangan.

Taong 2012 nang nagkasakit siya ng Hansen’s disease o mas kilala bilang leprosy. Bagamat gumaling na matapos komunsulta sa mga espesyalista, habang buhay na siyang PWD dahil wala na siyang kaliwang binti, at putol na ang dulo ng ilan sa kaniyang mga daliri sa kamay dahil sa mga komplikasyon ng leprosy.

Sa kabila nito, patuloy pa rin ang kaniyang pag-aaruga sa kaniyang anak, at pilit niyang isinasabuhay ang kasabihan na “hanggang may buhay, may pag-asa”.

Kaya’t laking tuwa ni Mary Grace nang siya ay mabiyayaan ng kaniyang sariling PANGKABUHAYAN SARI-SARI STORE with BIGASAN PACKAGE. Kasama sa Pangkabuhayan Package ang tatlong kaban ng bigas, instant noodles, canned goods, condiments, biscuits, coffee, gatas, chips, candies, asukal, asin, sabon, mga shampoo, toothpastes, fabric detergents, fabric conditioners, dishwashing liquids, laundry detergents at pati na rin ang timbangan at sando bags.

Ipinapakita ni Mary Grace sa atin lahat na hindi natin dapat payagan o hayaan maging dahilan o hadlang ang anumang pagsubok sa buhay.

Pag-asa ang handog ni Lord sa ating lahat. Kaya Mary Grace, nawa’y mapalago mo pa ang iyong munting tindahan, upang tuloy-tuloy na ang pagbangon ng iyong pamilya
