The memory for the iPhone 5c is part of the logic board. There is no way to increase the storage capacity without replacing the logic board or doing some rather tricky micro-soldering.

Find someone locally that offers storage upgrades for iPhones. I know someone in my area that does it (In Australia).

Basically they take off the NAND flash chip using a rework station then get a larger side flash chip and reprogram it to work on the phone using some programming flash box designed for them and then put the new chip on with rework station and I think the phone gets restored. Of course before changing the chip an iTunes backup can be done and then the iTunes backup can be restored to the new chip.

The only restriction is the firmware and what storage sizes it supports. Depends on whether the iPhone series had 16GB / 32GB versions. e.g you wouldn't be able to get iPhone 6 massive storage sizes on iPhone 5.
