A loan of $175 helped to buy merchandise to sell.


Teresa De Jesus's story

Teresa is a responsible, honest, and hard-working person. She lives with her children in the municipality of Choluteca, in the southern part of Honduras. She has been selling cosmetics for over fifteen years. She will use the loan to buy merchandise to sell, such as: lotions, creams, disinfectant, talcum powder, perfume, and others. She hopes to boost her sales with this loan, because it will enable her to have a wider variety of products on offer. She hopes to meet some expenses with her sales and thus to improve her and her family's economic conditions. She hopes to keep her business growing and to be one of the top sellers in the area in a few years. She wishes dearly for her children to grow into honest adults and to have better opportunities in life than those afforded to her.
