A loan of $1,200 helped to buy building materials and supplies.

Teresa Leonila's story

Teresa, 54, lives in La Primavera in Duran (an urban outlying area that was once irregular that has hills, streams and lagoons still present as evidence of ecology in disruption). She’s separated and has adult children. She sells clothes and women’s accessories.

She started her activity some time ago because she wanted to have a business of her own while spending more time with her family. She works by herself visiting her friends and acquaintances promoting her clothes and accessories for sale.

With help from the loan she wants to buy building materials and supplies like iron doors and paint. In the future she’d like to finish building her house.
