Hello, my sister and I have came up to this idea to cater the working class in our community with breakfast boosters (to go hot coffee, breakfast meals and lunch essentials that are already packed for their convenience) that opens at 5 a.m. since our place is located at the end and starting area for public utility vehicles.
In our village, most of the time, people occupy almost half of the lane and elbows each other just to get into that jeepney off to the capital city and we thought it is a points above the rest if we cater their breakfast needs. Something they can just grab, at an affordable price, and then go and run get a head off to have that ride.
We have personally experience the struggle since we used to work in the province's Capital as well, and we know what is they need.
But, we can't realize this vision without a place in the heart of the busy village. We need to pay the rent for the certain store we have in mind, it's seated in a small department store just along the highway where the rides fetch people.
Maximizing the store, we wish to turn it into a working cafe where students can gather and where working individuals can stay to have do their tasks remotely. We suggest to also serve beer, in a regulated manner to individuals of legal age, given the fact that we are all unique and there are people, like me, whose creativeness works well when infused with a bit of alcohol, which we describe "chill-chill lang (just to chill)."
I don't know if any of you would care to help people like me but there is not harm in trying. I, myself, was at first hesitant to have this posted here but my sister urged me to try.
By the way, we are located in a city in the Philippines (not Manila) and we are trying to change what people expects of us -- mere soldiers of societal unfairness. If you guys give us a chance, we will be first in both of our family history (maternal and paternal) to be in the entrepreneurship industry.
We just don't want to settle in the fact of working to pay bills and have a bit to eat. We want to give our parents what they deserve and be the last of this sandwich generation.
