Teresa De Jesus's story

Teresa is a kind, responsible, sociable, entrepreneurial woman. She is a single mother who lives with her daughter who is now older and has already set up her own home.

Teresa started her business making sheets and blankets from a very young age, work which has supported her daughter. She also currently works selling cosmetics, making an extra income. She has noticed that this work makes a great contribution to her home which is why she is asking for help to buy; perfumes, creams, lotions, deodorants and more items. Plus another part of the money will be invested in fabrics, elastics, threads and lace. This way she aims to progress both activities.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Erica McLay.
