Teresa Luz's story

66-year old Teresa Luz runs a corner store. This is not the first time she has taken out a loan. She is a single mother and struggles to support her two children. She’s had this job for 14 years and has always worked hard for the wellbeing of her family. Although her business isn’t fancy, she has a wide range of customers who ask for different products. The loan will be used to buy candy, soft drinks, bread, detergent, and grains.
