I'm Penny Grace Lanie Cenizal, 29 years of age, lives in the Philippines, Rizal Region. I have a 9 months old baby named Micah.
My former co-worker offers to train me for free on how to create some souvenirs. A handcrafted souvenir creation. I'm asking for help without judgement and criticisms. The funds I will collect here will be used to buy materials like air dry clay, letter molders, rolling pin, dotting tools and other tools needed for baptisms, weddings, birthdays and other souvenirs which I will sell online.
I want to start a small business at home to help my parents, my siblings and also for my child needs. But the funds are my problem. I don't know where I will get the funds. Since I was 17 I supported my self without the help of my family and others. My personal allowance is only exact for paying debts, rent, food, and other daily expenses. For now It's difficult for me to find a job in some companies because there's no one to take care of my child. I don't want to send my child to my parents because the situation in my home town is difficult due to the rainy seasons the flood stocks in our village because of its low area. I want to guide and take care of her with me. She is the one who make me strong to survive.
My parents are in Occ. Mindoro together with my 3 siblings. Their source of income is only from the retail store. My parents have a small retail store and when summer they doing ice candy for additional income. They started with the capital amount of Php 10,000 from lending, need to be paid weekly. The earnings from their store are not enough for their daily needs and expenses. My father has cellulitis in his left leg for almost 30 years which made him hard for working. We have no money for the medication needed and also he is afraid that his leg will be cut. He just doing self-medication treats. This year my second sister diagnosed with kidney failure and anxiety. For Gods grace, her kidney is fine now. She just taking her medicine for anxiety.
Hoping to give my parents a comfortable life while they are still alive and help my siblings to make their dreams come true. It's my happiness to fulfill my dreams to help not only my family but also others in the future.
