Teodora, better known in her community as Dora, is 24 years old and lives at AAHH 19 DE MAYO –LOS OLIVOS. She came to live with her family (mother and sisters) when she was still a young girl.

When she began her business she made and sold cleaning products. One year ago she opened a grocery store with which she helps her husband support their children.

Her intermediate goal is to construct a home because her current home is made of adobe. Dora has worked with EDAPROSPO since 2003 and has formed a community bank with the help of her friends.
