A loan of $525 helped buy raw material.

Teresa Soledad's story

Teresa Pretzntzin is 23 and single. She sells sweets and cotton candy. She lives with her family. She and her family do the same work. They have a machine to make sweets, and they have been selling for some time. Her home is located in the Paraje Chorajche in the Cantón Pasajoc, Totonicapán department, Guatemala.

Current customer demand is growing, but the economic condition in which she finds herself is not sufficient to increase her capital. That is why she came to the ASDIR Association to ask for a loan. She will buy raw material to be able to increase her sales. She is also hoping to get his family ahead and to have better living conditions.
