Meet Lan and his wife Nur Amyza Ismail, who are co-owners of Berkat Ilahi, a business that sells fresh poultry in Tanah Merah, Kelantan

The couple started from humble beginnings when they launched their business in 2008.

They initially had only one outlet, and drove a white Perodua Kancil.

Fast forward to 2019, Berkat Ilahi has expanded to four outlets all over Tanah Merah.

And Amyza has recently bought a brand new Audi A3 as a gift for her husband.

"It never crossed my mind that we would ever own our dream car," she shared in a Facebook post on 28 October, documenting the happy occasion.

"God will always bless those who are hardworking. I am giving my beloved husband the sports car of his dreams for all the hard work that he has put into this business."

They still have their Perodua Kancil, but have repainted it with a fresh coat of red.

Amyza also reflected, "Who would have thought that we are able to afford a sports car now in 2019, when we only started with a Kancil in 2008?"

Amyza wrote that back then, both of them were made fun of for fantasising about their success because they were not highly-educated

"We want to show people that we are also capable of success in our own way," she said.

Despite being insulted and disregarded by others, they did not back away from the criticism.

In fact, they are now grateful for it.

"We have never held a grudge against our haters. Because if we did, this negativity would have only dampened our spirits. Instead, we turned the negative comments into a burning motivation to continue striving."

Not forgetting their roots, as a form of gratitude to their loyal customers, they would also occasionally sell their goods at a discounted price

Yesterday, 4 November, for example, the business sold fresh chicken for only RM3.99 per kilogramme.

In the post, Amyza wrote, "We wish to share our blessings with our customers who always support our business."

In a separate post, her husband Lan said it was important to stay humble in every situation.

"When we are at the bottom, we need to do away with our negative traits and be confident that we can succeed.

"When we are at the top, we must remember to never make fun of those beneath us because everyone is capable of achieving success, for God can change everything."
