Teofanes's story

Teofanes is a married woman and a mother of three children from Panglao, Bohol, Philippines.

She has been engaged in a fish-vending business together with her husband for more than 18 years now. Teofanes buys the fish she sells from fishermen and sells them to the market. She works hard to support her husband in meeting the needs of the family.

She is asking for a loan to buy more fish and a bucket for the storage.

Teofanes hopes to make her business a success in the future.
