Teresa Maria's story

Teresa, 29, is a single mother of two children. Because of this situation she needed to have a job in order to support her children but because she couldn’t find employment she decided to open a small store at home.

She works all day Monday through Sunday. The business has allowed her to spend time with her children and care for them. She lives in the southern sector known as Isla Trinitaria that has unpaved roads which is a great problem; so is crime. Despite this, she will continue in her business for a long time.

The loan she’s requesting is to buy notebooks, construction paper, pens, illustrated prints, etc. in order to have a wide variety of products to offer. In time, her dream is to be able to open a store to increase business.
