Teofila C. is 59 and lives in the el Puente Trojes El Paraiso neighbourhood. Teofila sells corn. This type of business is very good since many people buy corn to make tortillas and tamalitos, and they also buy it for animal food. She will use this loan for the purchase of bags of corn since demand has increased and at times she runs out of corn to sell. This is Teofila's only job to generate income to cover her household costs.
