Who is Cristina?
Cristina Decena is a self-made woman who is currently the president of the CBC Group of Companies. Among its subsidiaries are the Muebles De Cristina, CBC Foundation, C. Castillo Realty & Dev’t. Corp., Signatures By Cristina, Cherdan Lending & Investment Corp., AVP Productions, CBC Meatshop, and the Phil. Asian Lending Group, Inc. Her tale is the classic rags-to-riches one, which Filipinos love to fictionalize in movies and telenovelas. However, these works of fiction do not even scratch the surface of the hardships and tribulations that Ms. Castillo had to go through to get to where she is now.
