Teresa is from the city of Villa Elisa and is married to Adelio. They have three children, one of whom completed high school while the other two are still in school. Her husband has worked in a blacksmith shop for the past ten years.


Teresa lived in the city of Coronel Oviedo until she was 16 years old. She then went to Asunción in search of a job and she worked at a family’s house as a maid for nine years. Later, she married and had her first child. Since she had to care for her baby, she spoke with a friend and they decided to study tailoring together so that they could work from home once they completed their studies.


Teresa currently works at a well-known funeral home in Paraguay where she makes garments to cover the coffins as well as the deceased. The loan is of great help to her because she can use it to purchase sewing machines.
