She carries out her business in the market of the 'cruce Villa Aldea' zone, a place strategically characterized by connecting various zones of the city by all types of transport, where the people agglomerate to find transit to their homes, a zone of cold and dry climate at an elevation of 3800 meters above sea level. Teresa is of dark complexion, long black hair, short stature, her native tongue is Aymará and she speaks Spanish according to the language of her customers (in the middle standing, whole red sweater). She carries out her life with her husband who is an electrician and works in a business of such. Their son studies the technical career of nursing at the university. All live in a halfway-constructed house of brick and adobe. They have water, electricity and gas. The need of improving their quality of life led her to form a bank of people with businesses like: clothing sale, sale of fruit, sale of tomatoes, knit garments, sale of fish, construction service and sale of empanadas in order to apply for a loan and fulfill their goals. Her business is the sale of fried fish, an activity that she's been developing since 8 years ago. It's already midmorning and the passersby of the zone start to smell the delicious aroma of fried fish coming from the market. More than one can't achieve resisting his appetite and they come up to the stall to order a plate of food from her. The place is small, it has two tables that are always found full, but in order to satisfy her customers, she has various benches to sit down and eat. In one hand they hold the plate and with the other, the spoon. There isn't a lack of customers who eat standing up for lack of seats. Finally the day finishes; she washes the pots, puts away her utensils and heads to her home. Her house is cozy, she has a dog that waits for her at the door. The rainy season is getting close and the roof is found ill-fated, water leaks and this floods on top of the furniture, the bed and all of her home. Her dream is to finish the construction of her home and she wishes to carry out an investment in repairing her roof and the wall of her house. This is the first sequence of loans with the institution in the eight years that she's been developing this activity. It's for these reasons that Tereza applies for a loan for the repair of her home and to be able to sleep without water leaks.
