Teodosia's story

Teodocia is a member of the communal bank Glorioso. She is 38 years old and sells "emoilente" in Puente Nuevo. She is married and has four children and has been a member of Finca for 15 years. There she learned everything she knows about having and maintaining a business. With her savings she has been able to improve her business and economic situation. She remembers that she began selling firewood but observed that the "emoliente" business was more profitable. Thanks to her savings she has been able to buy a computer for her children. The training has helped her lead a better family life. She plans to use the loan to buy cane and alcohol to prepare "emoliente".
