Sonny Ticsay is a hardworking father and husband who lives in Alaminos City, Philippines. He is married to Tricia and they were blessed with two children. For many years, Sonny has managed a sari-sari store with the help of his wife, and they work hard each day to ensure that their children can go to school. Although the store generated enough income to pay their school fees and to support their family’s needs, Sonny struggled to save for the future. He and Tricia were determined to send their children to college and to expand their store, but with all their household expenses, he never had the capital he needed to invest in the store’s expansion while also saving for college.
Sonny began to regain hope for his family’s future when he joined an Opportunity International Trust Group. He received valuable financial training and loan, which he used to restock his store with a wider selection of products. With a wider assortment and larger amount of goods to sell, Sonny has been able to meet more of his customers’ needs and increase his sales. Sonny is proud that his income is already on the rise and he is diligently saving for his family’s future.
