Teresa De Jesus's story

Teresa de Jesús is 49 years old. She is married and has one son. Her husband works as an independent carpenter. She buys clothing and sells it to the people in her community. She also makes tamales in her home and sells them door-to-door in nearby communities. She is part of the “María del Carmen Group 2”, along with Laura de la Cruz Vasquez, who has a small grocery store in her house. With the loan, Teresa wants to buy more clothes to sell in the surrounding communities. Laura wants to buy merchandise like cooking oil, conserves, and non-perishable foods in order to increase her income.
