“Whatever Fortune Brings”
Bernald D. Cenizal
Fortune lobsters and passion, that’s what perhaps led Bernald D. Cenizal, a resident of Sahud-Ulan, Tanza, Cavite, to be the privileged person he is right now. It all started when he embarked on breeding fortune lobsters in 1997 with a capital of Php150,000.00 and became a supplier of lobsters to different pet shops, one of which is Bio-Reaseach, a nationwide-known pet shop. Bernie was a regular Microfinance client of Bangko Mabuhay-Bacoor Branch. In order for him to produce cages that met the standards of Bio-Research, he applied for a substantial amount, and was granted under Small & Medium Enterprise Loan of Bangko Mabuhay. In 2001, he finally opened his first pet shop at Evangelista St. Mabolo I, Bacoor, Cavite.
At present, he owns 11 branches and a fabrication site. Joy Joy Pet Shop Corporation has now become a major supplier of cages (dogs, birds, etc), aquariums and a variety of accessories and feeds for pets in Southern Luzon.
