She has tomatoes, onions, potatoes, chilis, and more. She has had this business for several years and she has gained a lot of experience in sales. She has built a large clientele as she is very pleasant and helpful. People recommend her because she has the freshest produce with top quality and above all low prices. Telma is an energetic, hardworking woman with many dreams she hopes to achieve. Every day, she gets up trusting that with time, she will manage to earn herself a more prosperous future. She will put in maximum effort because she knows that it's the only way she will reach success. In recent weeks, demand has increased and she wants to take advantage of that to make a new investment, but she doesn't have sufficient capital.

She is sure that she will be able to pay off the debt and has faith that she will be able to offer economic security to her household.
