Teresa Agustina's story

This communal bank member is Señora Teresa. She belongs to the communal bank "Señor de los Temblores II" in the city of Cusco, Peru. She is a young mother of a family and is very hard-working. She sells trimmings that are used for crafts such as sewing, embroidery, decorations, dolls, etc. Teresa is applying for the loan to buy merchandise such as colored ribbons, lace trimming, fabrics, and accessories such as needles and fasteners to stock her business. Teresa has worked for some time at this business, which allows her to provide for her family, and thus she is very grateful to Kiva for allowing her to strengthen her business.
