Teresita's story

Teresita A. is already 70 years old; but despite the age, she is still strong and able to do business in the community. Teresita is a seamstress and has become quite popular making good clothes for all her clients. People come to her house for their dress needs especially wedding and party dresses. Teresita has eight children and is already a widow. One thing she is happy about, however, is that all her children were raised with good values and high morals. She forgets when exactly she started her tailoring business. What she remembers is that she was still single when she learned how to tailor clothes.

Teresita is now requesting a loan of PHP 6,000 to buy accessories for dressmaking. Part of the loan will also be used to repair her sewing machine. In this way, she can run her dress shop more efficiently and have more sales.

CEVI provides their clients with the credit assistance, trainings, and insurance services that they need.
