Teresa De Jesus's story

Teresa de Jesus works in commerce. Ten years ago she started a general store named "Pulperia Heydi".

She has built her clientele by attending to her clients with friendliness and attention. She has a good variety of first necessity products in her business such as rice, butter, sugar, eggs, soap, chicken, detergents and others.

Teresa is single and lives and cares for her parents in their home. She decided to have her own business so that she could not only take care of her parents but also have a source of income to better provide for them. Her parents are of advanced age and depend solely on her.
