Lanie doesn't want her children to experience what she went through during her young age. So, at her best, she endures everything in order to give her family a better way of living.
Lanie offers chicken joy (a fried chicken dish) and intestine of chicken, using flour. People sometimes refer to it as "tokong." She sell her products within the high school of her local community. Through her dedication and help of her husband, she is able to increase her sales. Lanie plans to buy stock flour, sticks, cooking oil, and additional kilograms of chicken legs for her food sales business. With regards to her goal, she is seeking financial assistance amounting to 5,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP). She hopes and prays that this loan amount will be granted for her to have continuous growth of business and to secure her family's future.
