Teresa De Jesús's story

Teresa de Jesús M. M. is 42 years old and resides in the Municipality of Lourdes Colón, located in the Department of La Libertad. She lives with her three children, all of whom are minors and attend school, which requires a great deal of effort on her part. Teresa owns a food stall where she is in charge of making breakfast and lunch. It is frequented by the workers of the different factories in the area and also by the residents of the town, San Juan Opico, located in the Department of La Libertad. She is greatly recommended by the business owners of the area, being a very hard-working and determined woman, whom has dedicated herself completely to the well-being of her three children, all of whom depend solely on her. As such, she is seeking out a loan, with which she will be able to purchase vegetables, chicken, bread, refreshments, and anything else she might need to be able to create more dishes and increase her sales.
