“It has been two weeks since Farah Hanis became my ‘daughter’, ” said Dr Siti Nur Aqilah, who has a five-month-old son.

> Sinar Harian reported that entrepreneur Fatimah Muda was able to improve her family’s livelihood after going into dried crackers business.

For two decades, the 62-year-old only weaved songket while her husband Sulong Awang, 67, worked as a carpenter.

With their meagre salaries, they lived from hand to mouth.

However, all that changed when Fatimah, also known as Kak Mek, started a dried crackers business in Pengkalan Setar, Terengganu.

“My siblings and other family members are also involved. Working like this is so much easier, ” she said.

She said it would take them two days to produce 100kg of dried fish crackers.

Fatimah said they sold the dried crackers at RM20 per kg and that during the school holidays and festive season, they could earn about RM800 a day.
