“Mentors Philippines has been with me for a few years now. My husband and I wanted to provide the best for our children. Today I am very blessed. My business is strong. I am able to help provide my children and family with jobs. I am always surrounded by family. Yes, I am very blessed,” says Lilia.

Lilia and her husband Dioniy own a lumber yard. They are very busy and there is a steady stream of customers all day. In fact, to get to Lilia’s business, one has to pass several other lumber yards. These other lumber yards are not nearly as busy and Lilia’s. When we asked why her business was so popular she says, “I am honest and fair with my customers. My mentors taught me how to track my inventory and keep proper business records. I learned how to set fair and honest prices for my lumber. My customers know that they can trust me. Also, I had the financial support from Mentors Philippines. When I needed a loan to purchase additional supplies or a new cutting saw Mentors Philippines helped me.”

“Mentors Philippines has made the difference and has blessed the lives of me and my husband, our children, and now our grandchildren.”
