Teresita is married and has two children.

Teresita is engaged in growing of citrus fruit, particularly calamansi. Before, she was a small-scale vegetable vendor. With her desire to succeed and obtain her dreams,Teresita did her best to improve the production of her citrus farm land. Sometimes she buys her co-farmers' citrus fruit and sells it and her own harvested fruit to big buyers.

Since her citrus production has improved, she requested additional capital of PHP 50,000 which allows her to buy more citrus fruits and pay for the expenditures in harvesting her fruits at their farm.

Teresita hopes to run a mini agricultural supply business someday.
