Teresa
View original language description ↓
Teresa Q., widow of Bautista, is the mother of 6 children whom she has been able to support through her ability to work with wool, to knit, and to fabricate jerseys as well as other items which she makes by hand in order to sell in the commercial centers of her area and the city of El Alto.


Thanks to the credit she has received from Pro Mujer, Teresa has been able to buy a sewing machine, with which she has increased her production and at the same time satisfied the demand that existed. However, this has still not been sufficient, since she has 6 children to feed and care for.


For this reason Teresa needs capital in order to increase her supply of raw material, and in this way elevate her production so that it will create a better income for maintaining herself and her 6 children.

Translated from Spanish by Debra Faszer-McMahon, Kiva Volunteer.


Teresa Q. Vda. De Bautista, es madre de 6 hijos, a los cuales supo sacar adelante con su habilidad para realizar trabajos en lana, tejodos, chompas y otros, los que fabricaba a mano para poder luego vender en los principales comercios de su zona y de la ciudad de El Alto.


Gracias a los créditos de Pro Mujer, Teresa pudo coprar una máquina de tejido, con la cual ha incrementado su producción y del mismo modo a satisfecho la demanda que existía, pero aún no es suficiente, ya que son 6 hijos los que debe alimentar y cuidar.


Por tanto, Teresa precisa de capital para poder incrementar la compra de su materia prima, y de esta manera elevar su producción para que esto represente un mejor ingreso para el sustento de ella y de sus 6 hijos.
