Every business has an unforgettable story of struggle. For Ratih, she interprets the process as a journey in sharing happiness with others.
Ratih Kusuma Dewi has only been in the culinary business for two years. But his spirit has grown since he faced the downturn a dozen years ago.
The woman from Kediri started her business in the field of fashion. At that time, Ratih, who is a housewife, admitted that she was just selling robes for fun. However, the business had to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Thank God I’ve been in business for a long time. I like selling, but I’m not serious. At first I sold robes, then we sold cheap food and drinks. Until we finally found this pineapple pie,” said Ratih, quoted from the YouTube channel. BreakEgg.
HiBunda has contacted the owner of the Broken Egg YouTube account and is allowed to write her story. Before doing business, Ratih had gone through difficult times when she was in college. He could barely continue his studies due to economic constraints.
“My lowest period was when I was in college in 2006 in Solo. There were family problems. Separated, yes, bankrupt. I was in a position where I couldn’t go to college,” he said.
Despite all the problems that came, Ratih chose to be patient and resigned to the Almighty. He also had the opportunity to work to continue his studies.
Even so, Ratih lives in loneliness. Busy work makes the woman does not have many friends. But again, God answered Ratih’s prayer with good things.
“I have also prayed, let me be a partner so that I am not alone. But it turned out to be answered with a good answer that exceeded my prayer. In 2009 I met someone, and in 2010 we got married,” said Ratih.
“My partner, we are both from scratch. We boarding, house contracts, until we have a house and a car we go through from scratch. So even if there’s a problem now, my knife is sharp. I’ve been honing it since 2006,” he added.
Now, Ratih has decided to get into the culinary business. He sells pineapple pie snacks made using a family recipe. Read on the next page.
