Teresa
Ms. Teresa F. M. is 56 years old. She did not attend school and she is married to a gentleman with whom she has six children, all of whom are married. Now she lives just with her husband, in the community of Mata Naranjo, 35 minutes from the municipality of Tierra Blanca in Veracruz state.

Ms. Tere (as she is called in her community) tells Fundación Realidad A.C. that a little over ten years ago, she felt the urge to start working to help her husband a little with their household expenses. So, with the help of her husband, she bought a corn mill that she used to start grinding nistamal (corn) for the women in her community. She gets up at five every morning to start grinding. She has her mill in her house, which is located on the edge of the La Granja-Temazcal highway. Some time later, she also started selling calling cards and electronic credits for cell phones. Now she tends to both businesses, but still does not neglect her housework.

She needs this loan to purchase some parts for her mill, as well as calling cards and cell phone credits to resell.

Ms. Tere hopes that in the future she will be able to use her earnings to buy a new mill a bit larger than her current one, so that she can keep working.

She is very grateful to the organization for his loan, which will give her the opportunity to continue investing in her business.
