Maria Teresa's story

Maria Teresa, at 42 years of age, dedicates herself to selling different edible products such as fruits, sodas and snacks from a small site built out of wood. Her stall is situated on the side of the primary road of the Puerto Berrio municipality, in the north of Antioquia, where she can offer her products to travelers. Maria Teresa has been carrying out this work for 23 years, working alone in her journey from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm.

She is very grateful for her business, which has provided the necessary income to help her four children get ahead. Maria Teresa would like to supply her stall to have products to offer to travelers, and to have the hope to improve sales, thereby improving the lives of her children and parents.
