Teresa Petrona's story

Señora Teresa sells vegetables and is a long-term member of the microfinance institution. She lives in the Coqueni area in her own small house. Her children are all grown-up but she is enlarging her small house so as to leave her grandchildren something for the future. For this reason she is asking for a loan to buy building materials to enlarge her house. Sra. Teresa is devoted to her family and lives with her husband who works as a wage-earning bus driver. They both work hard to get ahead and are grateful to the institution for its support.
