    Tricycle driver praised after using Php2k aid to sell barbecue, now earns Php1,200 per day

    MANILA, Philippines – A tricycle driver is being praised on social media after using the Php2k he received as COVID-19 aid from the city government to start a barbecue business. While the Php2k aid is not enough to support his family for a month, he used it for a business that now earns him around Php1,200 per day!

    Recently, tricycle drivers and operators flocked to the Quezon City Hall to receive Php2,000 as COVID-19 aid.

    Many commented that the money is not enough and were hoping that the city government could give more. Netizens agreed but also commented that these tricycle drivers are likely to get more aid from the government through the Social Amelioration Program (SAP), anyway. In NCR, that is actually worth Php8,000.

    Instead of complaining that the money is not enough, however, tricycle driver Samad Maulana used it to buy items he needed to open a barbecue stall in the neighborhood in Barangay Culiat, Quezon City. The business went so well that he is now earning as much as Php1,200 a day! This earned him much praise from netizens.

    “Yan yung karapat dapat na bigyan ng tulong. 👍👍👍. Hindi yung nakahawak lang ng konting pera na dapat ipambili ng pagkain e ipinambibisyo pa,” netizen D. Dechupa wrote.

    “Kapag binigyan ka ng Konti, Edi PARAMIHIN MO, hindi yung aangal ka na Kulang..WAG KANG TAMAD!!” commented J. Fortes.

    “Kung sa ganyang tao mapupunta ang tax ng mga tao, mas mabuti pa dahil kaya nya palaguin yung binigay sa kanya kesa sa iba dyan, naka kuha na galing sa SAP pero inuna pa mag sugal at ibili ng droga yung pera. Sana gamitin lang sa pangangailangan lalo na sa pagkain,” C. Malla praised.

    “Mas okay tong si kuya bigyan ng ayuda kesa kay ate n kulang ang 8k para sa isang lingo,” wrote J. Ivan, referring to the 4Ps beneficiary who said that the Php8k-aid is not even enough for 1 week.
