Teresa De Jesús's story

Teresa de Jesús R. A., 43, lives in the department of La Libertad. She lives with her husband and their three young children, all of whom are in school. Teresa has a food store, which helps the family, as her husband’s income is not enough to cover all the household expenses. Teresa is seeking a loan to buy grains, vegetables, bread, candy, and other products, which are popular in the store. She hopes that this year she can increase her earnings and be able to offer everything necessary to her children.
