Teresa's story

Sra. Teresa is from the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. She is 49 years old, married, and has two children who are finishing high school. Teresa defines herself as a determined and hardworking woman. She says that everything she does is geared toward providing for her children’s welfare and giving them a better future.

Teresa has managed a food pantry for approximately 10 years. Gradually over time and with great sacrifice, she was able to grow her business. She says that she has a good number of customers, especially on the weekends when there is more demand.

Teresa and her husband work together, which makes managing their business a bit more fun. She dreams of continuing to grow and having a larger store where her customers are more comfortable.

Teresa is requesting a loan to buy meats, dairy products, vegetables, baked goods, beverages, and other items to restock her shop. She is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunity that has been given to her.
