Lolo Aquiles is blind, but he continues to work hard selling ice drop and balut, and makes bayong bags. He depends on the honesty system in making sales. s

“Me: Lolo, maogmahon akong mahiling ka sa personal!
Lolo A: Nahiling mo ako sa TV o sa Facebook? 😊
Salamat naman at natagpuan ko siya sa Sogod, Bacacay! Siya Si Lolo Aquiles, sikat na sikat sa buong bayan. Sa kabila ng kanyang edad at pagiging bulag, magiting pa ring naghahanap-buhay para maitaguyod ang pamilya sa pamamagitan ng pagbebenta ng ice drop at balut. Gumagawa rin siya ng bayong. Honesty system ang paraan niya ng pagbebenta at pagtatrabaho. Lolo, patuloy po kayong maging inspirasyon! 🙂
Nais ko po silang i-prioritize sa agenda ng Sangguniang Panlalawigan. Dapat walang maiiwan sa kaunlaran! 😊,” Onrubia posted.
