Teresa De Jesús's story

Teresa De Jesús C. B., 41, lives in the Rosario de Mora municipality, which is located in the La Paz department. She lives with her husband, a day laborer, and her son. Even though she has a small family, Teresa must make an effort everyday to be able to have enough money for the household expenses. That is why she has a business selling chicken, beef, and pork. She sells from her home. Teresa is asking for a loan to be able to buy a larger quantity of meat, especially pork, because her customers request it the most. This way she expects to be able to improve her business conditions. Thanks to this, she has been improving the family’s economic situation during the last months. Teresa is a person with a lot of determination and desire to get ahead with her family. That is why she puts forth her maximum effort day by day to offer better service. This way she will get more customers.
