Teresa Anitas's story

Teresa is 66 years old and lives in Libertad with her husband. In her home, she has a grocery store where she sells basic necessity products. She chose this business because no one will hire her at her age. In addition, working in this manner enables her to work peacefully and still earn an income. Her business is open every day from morning to night and she is able to provide uninterrupted service. Teresa’s husband makes wooden cargo containers for vehicles, so with her store she is able to help with the expenses. She has only one child who is a dependent since her other children are grown and independent.


Teresa will use this loan to buy rice, sugar, juices, colas, ice pops, and canned goods so that she can increase the sales volume in her store.
