Razelyn of CDO: Just trust in God

Razelyn, 32, doesn’t know of any other way to earn but sell candles, which she’s been doing for “dugay na (a long time now)” in front or Cagayan de Oro City’s St. Augustine Cathedral. It’s not an extremely difficult job, she said, but it doesn’t earn her much either. It’s something she has to do, though, as a mother of five, and since her husband doesn’t have full time employment.

At times, she only earns P60 per day; lessen the P15 travel expenses, she’s not left with a lot.

But Razelyn remains happy. “Basta kasama ang pamilya at may pananalig sa Diyos, okay lang (As long as you’re with your family and you have faith in God, it’s okay),” she said.
