Tersa's story

Tersa is a 49-year-old married woman from Antequera, Bohol. She is a mother of two children ages nineteen and fifteen years old. She has been in the basket weaving business for thirty years. She sells native handicrafts like baskets made of nito (a plant material). Aside from her basket-weaving business, she raises hogs.

Tersa plans to use the loan to buy materials for weaving such as nito, and to buy additional piglets and feed. In the future, Tersa would like to expand her business to support her family as well as to finance her children's quality education.
