A loan of $1,000 helped to buy food products.

Maria Teresa's story

Maria Teresa Y. I. is 52 years old. She is married and lives with her four children who are still single and students. She lives in her own home. She has a lot of experience in her business as a saleswoman. She has run a store in her own home for the past 15 years. Teresa serves in her store and through her warm dealings with her customers she has managed to get them to visit her over and over. These repeat visits are also due to the wide selection of food products she provides such as water, soda, sugar, corn and beans. This is why she has been successful and has managed to expand her business. Thanks to her previous loan she managed to set up another business and she would like this other loan to be able to stock her business with more food products which her customers are asking for. She has worked hard to get ahead and has several goals such as, for example, to continue helping her children with their studies.
