Maria Teresa
View original language description ↓
Maria Teresa is married with 3 kids who are 21, 15 and 11 years old. The eldest is a factory worker and the younger two are in high school and elementary school respectively. Her husband is also a factory worker and she had to find work in order to help her husband to cover the household costs and their kids' education. She is very hard working and knows a lot about cooking, so she decided to start selling toasted sandwiches, soft drinks and fried foods 3 years ago. Her sales have gradually risen and with her savings she was able to find a place to sell her foods to kids and teachers in a school.

Maria Teresa would now like a loan of $750 to buy more products for her canteen and more ingredients so that she can offer a wider range to her clients. She will repay this loan in 6 months. Her and her family thank you for your support which means that she can continue with her business and support her family.
