"I never run away from challenges no matter how extremely difficult. Giving up is not in my DNA."

Beginning

Some time ago, there was a child who was born and raised in Tondo, Manila.

Shrimps & Fishes

At a very young age, he was already helping his mother sell shrimp and fish in the Divisoria Market. With the burning desire for a better future and a strong determination to improve his family's living conditions, he worked hard in selling shrimps and fishes to be able to send himself to school.

University of the Philippines Diliman

With hard work and perseverance, he earned his undergraduate and master's degree in Business Administration and Accountancy at UP Diliman.

Sand & Gravel

With an initial capital of P10,000 in 1975, Villar purchased two reconditioned trucks and started his sand-and-gravel business in Las Piñas.

It is here while delivering construction materials to big developers that he came up with the idea of selling house and lot packages when the convention then was for homeowners to but lots and build on them.

From Partisan to Citizen

By the time this column comes out, it would have been two days after our people have made their choice and cast their ballots. I am not sure if the winner has been clearly established by now but it seems the perfect opportunity to change from campaign mode to governing mode. Now, we are done with the battle of platforms, the war of words, the conflict in the airwaves and the many, many scuffles on social media. It is not an exaggeration to say that this campaign has been very divisive.

Economic Accomplishments

By the time this column sees print, we will already know the early results of the May 9 elections and the front-runners in the presidential, vice-presidential and senatorial races based on the automated tabulation of votes.

While it may take a few more days to have the complete list of the new set of elected government officials, it is time to look back and note the momentous steps taken under the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.

The King of Our Home

Manuel B. Villar, Jr., the rags-to-riches billionaire, is many things to many people—a politician, one-time presidential aspirant, real estate and retail tycoon, kingmaker and so much more but to his three children—Vista Land president Manuel Paolo Villar, Public Works Secretary Mark Villar and Las Piñas Rep. Camille Villar, he is, more than anything else, the king of their home, the best father they could ever have.

Manny Villar: At Home in His Empire

Tycoon Manuel B. Villar, Jr. is undoubtedly one of the fathers of the Philippine property industry.

But he stands out because his is an empire he himself built from scratch or to put in more specifically, out of a single red truck for gravel and sand. Indeed, he didn’t have a head start because he was not a second generation builder.

How Manny Villar Started Vista Land 14 Years Ago

A life made beautiful has always been the goal for businessman Manny Villar. Manny couldn’t help but reminisce how Vista Land started. The real estate development firm has been building homes for 14 years now.

So far, the company has built over 400,000 houses across the country that began with Manny’s dream of “creating more and bigger opportunities of home ownership for the Filipino family.”
