A man named Edmar, featured on the magazine show Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, is now earning millions of pesos. He owns several SUVs and delivery vans.

He has established 250 branches nationwide and franchising more than 20 food cart business concepts.

The extravagant lifestyle Edmar is presently enjoying did not come for free; as his story is a true tale of a person who made a transformation from rags to riches!

According to a GMA News story, Edmar was born poor from a broken family and experienced bullying by family members.

He had been a vegetable vendor, a parking boy, a computer shop staff, and a carwash boy — earning only P100.00 per day.

Edmar tried to become an OFW but he failed; thereafter, he enrolled in TESDA to become a barista.

He received an allowance of P8,000 after each course he completed which he invested in a coffee cart. He only wished for P2,000 per day but to his delight, he made P12,000 on his first day.

His coffee cart proved to be a strong business, that is why he pushed it; heading to the cemetery during All Saints Day, and to the beach during summer to sell his coffee concoctions.

Soon, he had enough money to buy a car, then a condominium unit, and he was able to marry the woman whom he considers as his lucky charm.

There were setbacks but he overcame them. He attended seminars and took the chance of investing in a few new carts which yielded great results.

Edmar said, “Daig ng madiskarte ang matalino. Diskarte ang ginawa ko kung bakit napalago ko ‘yung negosyo ko, kahit hindi ako grumaduate ng isang bachelor’s course.”

[A great approach beats intelligence. I used a great approach to bring my business to its present status. Even if I didn’t finish a bachelor’s course.]

The entrepreneur said studying is still important though — that is why he is presently studying.
