Teresa Virginia's story

Teresa Virginia is 46 years old, married, and has four children, of which three are adults and independent and one is 10 years old and in school. Her husband is a farmer. They live in their own home. They live in Crucita, a few minutes from the capital [of the province]. It is a small town of fishermen and its main source of work is artisan and industrial fishing, and agriculture.

Teresa Virginia, together with her husband, has a small shop that they rent and where they make a living selling a variety of food like breakfasts and lunches. They make these every day. Their customers prefer them because of their good service and variety of food. While she cooks, her husband tends to the customers. She also raises and sells chickens. When they are big she sells them, and she also uses them to make food in the restaurant.

At the beginning, the health crisis was very bad for her since she couldn't sell anymore, but little by little it is reactivating so that she can continue generating income. With this new loan, she will buy groceries like rice and vegetables in order to continue preparing food. Her dream is to have her own shop and for her children to have good health.
