Teresita is 52 years old and has eight children. She is married and two of her children are currently in school.
She is in the agricultural business, pig fattening in the Philippines. Teresita requested a PHP 15,000 loan through NWTF to buy feed and vitamins for her pigs. Teresita has been in pig fattening for 10 years now, and has borrowed 10 times in the past from NWTF to sustain it.
In the future, Teresita would like to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
