Ada Teresa H. sells everyday consumer goods and has been running her grocery shop for several years. Teresa is a mother of 4 children who all go to the local school.
Teresa gets up at 4am to serve her customers, as the area she lives in is very productive. Teresa and her husband work hard to provide for their family. In her spare time, she goes to church and breeds chickens.
She will use the loan to buy more stock for her grocery business.

Young Vanyi M. has been making garlands and piñatas for 5 years. She learned the skill from her mother, who now helps her to make the piñatas. Vanyi has just got married and together she and her husband are working hard to buy their own home, as they currently live with her mother.
