Maria Teresa's story

Maria Teresa sells advertising materials. She has been in this business for over 31 years. Her business consists of making bags with publicity slogans, and she has a good number of orders. She has help from a girl who works with her making her products.

Her business is located in her house. In spite of not having much space; she makes bags, backpacks, pouches, and other products.

The loan she is requesting is to buy thread, scissors, fabric, and special material for the bags, boxes, purses, and other things. This is where she manages to get the income that her household needs.
