Minot is a busy homemaker married to a retired policeman. They have 6 children. For three years now, she faced difficulty dividing her time between caring for her 12 grandchildren and managing her business.
She sells jawa noodle paste, kuih, curry puff and donuts. Her grandchildren help her by selling the curry puff to their friends at school. Her daughter who works as a teacher also helps her by selling the curry puff at school twice every week. She usually sends 25 packs of jawa noodle paste, which cost RM6 per pack to Kampung Boyan where it would take around 2 weeks to sell. In spite of all her efforts, there was low demand for her jawa noodle paste as it was still unavailable in the market and not very known yet.
