Broadcast journalist Karen Davila tells the story of how a man, Arthur Tugade, who grew up in the squatter’s area overcame hurdles to become a millionaire by retirement in “My Puhunan” .
Arthur built a forwarding business that contracts with carriers to move cargo, primarily balikbayan boxes, across different countries.
Arthur’s nine-year-old company now brings in P7 million a month. Since becoming successful, he has ventured into other businesses and now owns a gas station, a travel agency, and a clothing factory.
In the episode, Karen also features PBA star player James Yap’s newly opened scooter store, which sells Italian-made scooters and motorcycles with brands like Vespa, Aprilla, and Piaggio. It took James less than a month to recoup the money he initially invested in the business and has since earned at least P200,000.
