I, Nerleb Likisap oginally from the Micronesian Islands namely Chuuk Islands. I came here in siouxcity IA, to pioneer a Micronesian Church. I am very thankful, for the Withfield Church of Siouxcity had accepted us and we used their building  until now. However, I am very in need of financing and I am thinking of setting a small business that can help me survived. I went to the trainning and got my certification and now I can now begin my small business.
