Teodocia is a woman who carries out her work with great care. Thanks to her determination, she was able to open a business in her own home. There she sells basic household products such as groceries, vegetables, canned goods, drinks, candies, etc. She says that buying all her merchandise took a lot of effort and hard work as she had to save up each month. As if this wasn't enough, Teodocia also prepares fast food which she sells in the afternoons and evenings outside her store. "Hamburgers and salchipollos are profitable because they sell every day", she says, adding that thanks to the location of her business (next to a sports complex) she sells all her food without problems. Over time, Teodocia hopes to consolidate her business into a minimarket where she will also offer beauty products, jewelry and perfume.

Teodocia has been working with MFP for a long time and this will be her 13th loan thanks to your help. She belongs to a united and supportive group called 'GS-006'. She is happy with their work. Teodocia will invest her money in buying merchandise with which to stock her store. Her priority is acquiring bags of rice, sugar, cans of milk and canned fish.

Teodocia es una mujer que trabaja con esmero. Gracias a su propio empeño pudo abrir un negocio en su propia casa. Ahí expende productos de primera necesidad como abarrotes, menestras, enlatados, bebidas, golosinas y otros. Pero, manifiesta que lograr comprar toda su mercadería le costó mucho esfuerzo y trabajo, ya que tenía que ahorrar cada mes.
Y como si fuera poco, Teodocia prepara alimentos comida rápida, la que expende en las tardes y noches fuera de su bodega. “Las hamburguesas y salchipollos son rentables, por que las ventas son diarias”, afirma, añadiendo que, gracias a su ubicación (al lado de un complejo deportivo) sus productos son consumidos sin problemas.
Con el pasar del tiempo espera consolidar su negocio como un minimarket, en el que también ofrecerá artículos de belleza, joyas y perfumes.
