The Story of the Filipino: Lakas at Sipag

In this episode of The Story of the Filipino, we listen to stories of hope and perseverance of two fathers.

Mario Aceron is a former seafarer from Bohol. In 2012, he decided to quit his job to take care of his sick son. Now, Mario juggles multiple jobs as tricycle driver, poultry raiser and a caretaker to provide for his family.

Just like Mario, Allan works day and night to make ends meet. He hopes to grow his scrap business to give a better life for his nine children.
