84-Year-Old Grandma Earns Sympathy Online for Selling Bread to Support Family Despite Old Age

An 84-year-old grandma goes viral and touched the hearts of the netizens for selling bread despite her old age.

A Facebook user named Sarkie Cedric Ortiz II has shared heartbreaking photos of an elderly vendor roaming around the streets to sell bread to earn money. The post elicits various reactions from the netizens.

The elderly vendor identified as Nanay Rosalina Perpetua of Barangay Angeles Atimonan, Quezon has been spotted roaming around the town to sell bread using a trolley. The grandma has been enduring the extreme heat of the sun and inclement weather conditions just to earn money.

Nanay Rosalina still works despite her old age just to support the financial necessities of her family. Although earning a small amount, the senior citizen considers it a huge help for their daily expenses.

Perpetua is already a widow for more than two decades. She has been selling bread for 40 years and endures her blurry eyesight just to provide for her family although she is tired and exhausted.

However, the elderly breadwinner expressed her happiness upon witnessing her customers who were satisfied with her products.

Here is the full post:

“Rosalina Perpetua

Si nanay Rosalina Perpetua po ang gustong gusto ko mabigyan ng regalo ngayong darating na kapaskuhan dahil sya po ay masipag at huwarang ina. Siya po ay naninirahan sa Barangay Angeles Atimonan, Quezon. May labindalawa po syang mga anak na mayroon na din pong kanya-kanyang pamilya at ang kanyang asawa naman po ay dating sundalo. Sa edad niya pong 84yrs old ay nagagawa pa po niyang mangamuhan o mag-angkat ng tinapay na kanya namang ilalako bitbit ang mabigat at pinaglumaang trolley umulan man o umaraw upang may mapakain at maipandagdag gastusin po sa kanyang pamilya. Maliit man ang kanyang kinikita ay napakalaking tulong na po nito sa kanya lalo na’t sya po ay mahigit dalawang dekada ng biyuda. At dahil na din po sa katandaan nya at sa loob ng 40yrs nya pong paglalako ay iniinda na po nya ang pagkalabo ng kanyang mga mata dahilan upang pagsumikapan pa ang kanyang hanapbuhay. Bagamat nakakapagod para kay nanay Rosalina ang pagtitinda masaya naman po sya sa napili nyang hanapbuhay dahil na din sa mga kostumer nyang nabubusog sa murang halaga at ang iba pa ay nituturing na din syang para nilang Lola. At ngayon nga pong darating na kapaskuhan isa lamang po kanyang hiling ay ang humaba pa po ang kanyang buhay at maging malusog. At kung sakali man pong palarin nawa’y mapatingnan po muna ang kanyang mga mata at kalusugan nya. Yun lamang po maraming salamat.”
