Grupo Familia Unida 1 Group's story

This is Teresa. She's 35 years old and married, and is the mother of two children between the ages of 19 and 22. She lives in Camaché Canton with her beloved family.

Teresa has been working for about 10 years in her business buying and selling traditional regional clothing. She has managed to see positive changes in her life and her family's life thanks to her effort and dedication.

One of her goals is to keep on innovating in her business, which leads her to request a loan this year to invest in a purchase of traditional clothing in various designs and colors.

She's proud of doing this kind of work because it earns her extra income, with which she covers the necessary household expenses.
