A loan helped a member to make improvements to her food stand, especially a new roof for the diners, and another part for raw ingredients for the food she makes.


Bendicion De Dios Telica Group's story

This is the Bendición de Dios Telica lending group, which is composed of 8 members. Teresa Manuela (in the middle of the group wearing a pink t-shirt and hand on her waist) is the featured member. She works selling clothing by order and has a restaurant where she sells food Saturdays and Sundays. She is the mother of 3 children: two teachers and a mechanic. She became widowed at a young age. She loves to work, likes to set goals, and is responsible.

She needs a new loan to make improvements to her food stand, especially a new roof for the diners, and another part for raw ingredients for the food she makes.

She faced great challenges from a young age when her husband passed away in an accident and she had to work harder to finish raising her children. "You have to fight and never rest, because nothing falls from the sky," she emphasizes.

She is counting on your financial support to progress!

In this group: Egipcia Desiree, Allison Stefany, Ana Cecilia, Ruth Del Carmen, Teresa Manuela, Marlyn De La Cruz, Carlos Antonio, Maria Jose
