Teresita is 47 years old, married, and thankful for having three children. Her family is her motivational guide, and she works hard to give them a better quality of life by doing something that brings in additional income and will allow her to support her children. She has had a retail store based in their home for four years. The daily net profit of 500 PHP is just enough to cover the cost of the family's daily meals. Thus she is thankful for having other sources of income aside from retailing. She also has raised pigs for 10 years.

To improve her income in the store, Teresita is requesting a loan of PHP 50,000 to purchase additional items such as biscuits, soft drinks, cooking oil, sugar and other cooking ingredients. She will also buy feed and vaccines for her pigs. Teresita says the loan will be very helpful in the success of her businesses.
