Eleuteri is a married woman from Talibon, Bohol. She has five children aged between 16 and 29 years old. She is engaged in the pottery making business. She has been making and selling pots made of clay for 10 years now, while her husband works as a carpenter. She has requested a loan of 9000 PHP to buy clay and a new mould.
