Feliciana S., from Surallah South Cotabato City, is the mother of seven and an entrepreneur who has always dreamed of a better life for her family. A CEV client for four years already, Feliciana used the loan she previously received from CEV to start her own rattan furniture business. Accommodating the schools, her friends and other people, she has been able to firmly establish her business and provide for all her family’s needs.

Feliciana is now requesting another loan in order to purchase furniture materials. In an interview she said that she wants to add more displays of sofas, dividers, and beds to her store so as to attract more customers and increase her sales volume. An improved income will allow her to send all of her children to college. “As a mother, all I want for my children is for them to finish their studies and live a comfortable life,” she added.
