"Compensating the Needs"
Client Name: "Lucita Dionela" Address: "Tibiao, Antique"
A widow with four children achieved success through TSKI, returns back to salute the company's advice.
A resident of Tibiao, Antique, Lucita Dionela knew that life would be harder after they buried her husband. With four kids to feed she had resort to different honest jobs to compensate their needs.
Raising poultry fired up the family's income where her initial capital was only 10,000 pesos that she had saved through the years. Yet she is still not contented with that. She saw that with the present trend in communication technology it will open to other industries where she expects to boom in the coming years.
That is where Lucita opened her own cellular phone shop. After selling all the chickens and raising enough money to purchase the products that she would sell she opened her own store in their area.
Business was doing well and she was able to purchase more in demand cell phone accessories. At that time she can say she was able now to support her family, until a friend and current member introduced TSKI along with the company's background in micro finance. She got interested and eventually was able to be approved for a loan where she used to purchase additional goods.
With diligence and persistency she was able to loan to a bigger amount where she used as capital which she also purchased units and opened her own service center. Her daughter-in-law and son-in-law who have backgrounds on cell phone repair served as technician where they too were able to receive an honest pay.
With an additional finance from TSKI Lucita could be able to purchase additional goods for her business and use the rest in repairing their home.
Her children Luis a seaman, Joe Vincent a LGU employee, Ana Marie a commerce graduate and Joe Marie also a seaman by profession are all happily married.
Lately, Dionela was awarded as Best Center Chief and an award for their center as the Best center and Best Center House Award during the 5th Anniversary of Culasi Branch last October 2009.
She is proud that TSKI helped in transforming its members as better citizens and establish a TSKI community where they can share and help their concerns for the betterment of their center and their town as a whole.
