Teresa tiene 71 años de edad, esta acompañada y tiene tres hijos; pero ya son independientes solo vive con ella un nieto de 18 años de edad y su compañero de vida. Ella se dedica a realizar trabajos agrícolas, ya que de ahí obtiene el grano para su consumo y para la venta la otra parte.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundacion Campo, es para comprar semilla de maíz, fertilizantes y una ternera para alimentarla con el rastrojo que le quedo de la cosecha anterior. Ella menciona que mientras tenga vida seguirá trabajando para el sustento de su familia.
