Meet former janitress-turned-millionaire

Feb. 18, 19 | 12:32 pm

A former janitress earning Php280 per day seemed to have a Cinderella-like story and is now living the dream of being a millionaire.

At a young age, Milane Pindot had been exposed to the harsh reality of life. She stopped attending the school at 16, and instead opted to work as a laundress at the residence where her mother also worked as a maid.

“‘Pag naglalaba ako ng damit ng amo ko sabi ko, ang ganda-ganda ng damit na ‘to. Sana balang-araw makabili din ako ng ganitong klaseng damit. Syempre pinapangarap mo siyang suotin. Kaya lang sobrang liit ng sahod talagang hindi kasya. Pang-kain lang talaga,” Milane told Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho.

When Milane saw an opportunity to work as as janitress in a school in Antipolo, Rizal where she would earn twice her earnings, she immediately grabbed it.

However, she was eventually laid off for being late as she was also doing other jobs for extra income such as selling shoes and perfume, among others.

On top of that, another hurdle struck Milane; her mother was diagnosed of a lung disease. “Dumating ‘yung pagkakataon na yung mama ko 50-50 pero hindi siya tinatanggap ng ospital kasi wala kaming pang-down,” Milane said.

In 2013, she married a Korean whom she met only a week before their marriage. But the whirlwind romance ended a day after their wedding, leaving Milane in shock as she was also apparently carrying their child.

To support her child, she started selling cosmetic products in 2014. In ten months, she began earning Php50,000 monthly until Milane earned her first million in 2017.

Since then, Milane managed to buy her own car, and two parcels of land.

“Sobrang sarap po sa pakiramdam kasi dati mop yung hawak ko tapos ngayon manibela na ng sarili kong sasakyan ‘yung hinahawakan ko. Totoo ba ‘to? Akin ba talaga ‘to?” Milane said.
