Edriane’s Story: Young Entrepreneur Start-up Program

June 8, 2022 | Written by Rhodora Añonuevo

Hello! I am Edriane Dave M. Colindon, 18 years old from Pulilan, Bulacan. Member of Christ In You Pulilan Christian Baptist Church. Last November 2021, I was invited to orientation via Google meet in the Young Entrepreneur Start-Up Program or YES Program. The Young Entrepreneur Start-Up Program (YES) is an initiative by Kapatid Ministry that aims to teach, inspire, and support poor high school and college students in starting their own livelihood or business. Kapatid Ministry conducted one-month online training for all YES scholars they invite Christian trainers from the local churches to teach all YES scholars how to start a business and how to manage it they teach us how to be a young entrepreneurs.

I learned a lot from them and because of YES Program, I have a business named Twins RTW a Ready To Wear Shirts. As a youth, it's not easy to start a business by yourself because of failure and the shame of selling and offering products that you will experience in starting a business but because of the trainers and the YES Program, I feel no worries because they teach me to become more confident and to be a risk-taker. The Young Entrepreneur Start-Up Program helps me to become a Young Entrepreneur. That's why I am grateful to the Lord because He allowed Kapatid Ministry to start a program like this. I am thankful for all the people that He used for this program. They have been such great blessings for me and my family. I am grateful to be part of this program. Thank you for everything God bless us all.
