She grows potatoes, peas, and lately she has started growing flowers with the help of her husband since she noticed that her neighbors are doing well in this business. For 3 years, she has grown flowers. She rents plots of land where she had grown potatoes previously to take advantage of the fertile soil, and she only has to worry about fumigating. In this way, she reduces her investment costs and tries to save her proftis so she can make progress with her other porducts and be a successful farmer. She can't sit easily at home because she is a dynamic and enterprising woman and is always active. Teolinda wants to buy a stand in the market in the city so she can sell her products herself and gain a lot more than she does now. Teolinda has been the secretary of her communal bank for several consecutive cycles. She supports the treasurer in collecting their payments. This is her eleventh loan with Microfinanzas Prisma, and in all this time she has demonstrated responsibility with her payments. The money she is requesting will go towards fertilizers and pea seeds to sow this season.
