Teresa has 20 years of experience selling vegetables because she started working with her mom since she was very young at the markets. Little by little, she was able to open her own business, which helps her make ends meet and provide a good education for her children. Teresa and her husband, who has been a great support, open the business everyday from 6:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Teresa would like to have her second loan so that she can continue to invest in her business. She has previously bought grains and more vegetables, and these products have been welcomed by her clients. She will use this loan to buy larger amount of goods from farmers in the rural sectors.

Teresa is 47 years old. She has 2 sons who are already adults and help her as much as they can. Her husband works as a construction worker and helps her with the business whenever he has free time. They hope they can finish building their house, which is currently made out of cane.
