Teresa De Jesús
Teresa has been selling vegetables for 10 years. Her business is in the Santa Tecla Market, located in the Department of La Libertad. Each morning she has to travel a great distance in order to get to work. Teresa is requesting a loan so that she can have the financial capability to restock her business. She will buy a large quantity of vegetables, especially the ones that she sells the most. Teresa hopes to improve her sales and obtain more earnings that will be of great benefit to her household. She is a cheerful woman who has many good references from her neighbors. They consider her to be a hardworking woman who has great desire to succeed.
