Teresita Rufantina's story

Teresita Rufantina lives with her family in the city of Portoviejo.

She is a fighter. She is able to make a living thanks to her business. She works in retail and her income allows her to cover her daily expenses but sometimes unexpected expenses arise which she isn't able to pay. For this reason she is requesting a loan. Her granddaughter needs a computer so that she can do homework and research in order to improve her knowledge.

She will use this loan to buy a computer. Her goal is to give the best to her family.
