ABOUT ME: Hello, My name is Misty. Im 28 and a mother of 2 beautiful kids: Eze and Faye. Im from the Philippines. I have 2 other siblings and out of all 3 im the only lady in the family. I stopped schooling at the age of 20 and been working multiple jobs just to get going. Got pregnant with my youngest at the age of 21, having to raise kids at a young age It was difficult especially Im just the only working for my kids, without a help of a parent or a family. I came from a broken and complicated family. my mom left us when I was still a baby, my father has a second family and I was raised by my grandparents: Victor and Susana.
ABOUT COVE CANTEEN: Because I have bigger dreams and plans for my kids I decided to start up a business: Cove Canteen which is located at Balamban, Cebu. I decided to give it a try and see how it works. So had a career change and start up my own business as an additional income. my business location has 3 other big canteen competitors and mine is not so big especially that I just started it. Im currently using my income working at home as freelance to get the canteen rolling. I've applied for business loans but I get denied because they needed bank statements, credit card or passbook and business has to be running for 3 years and I dont have the said requirements yet. I have hard time figuring out what to do with it now. To open up a business you need to register it to Bureau of Internal Revenue and other business requirements like mayors permit, business permit, peza certificate, sanitary permit and more. To make the story short, I really need financial support for my business. The salary I am earning right now is not enough to sustain the canteens needs. I have a 6 year old son who is still studying and the truth is I still owe the school and I cant get his documents not until I pay it. I’ve been struggling financially to make things work and dreams happen. I'm trying my very best but my best is not enough. I’ve been trying to work multiple jobs to make ends meet and get the business going, but it still probably won’t end up being enough to really make it. So, I decided that it couldn’t hurt to ask the community for help.I really want this to work out for myself and above all for the future of my kids. Please give me a chance to reach my goal and help me with my dreams. I want to show the world that there is more out there in the world if you chase your goals and endure through whatever life throws at you. as long as I can breathe I will try no matter how hard things get for the betterment of my kids and with all of your help you can make it happen. please only give if you have the means to do so! I only ask if you are interested in donating, that you please only give what you have and that whatever you will be donating will be towards a greater goal that can honestly make a difference for me and my kids. Thank you for reading.
