Teresa Reina's story

Teresa, 41, lives with her husband in her own home. She owns a store where she sells basic goods, beans, milk, eggs, bread, sugar, coffee, shampoo, soap and so on. She has spent many years in her business and this has given her sales experience which allows her to obtain better profits. The store is located in her home and is well known by the locals in the area. Teresa has grown a large customer base which is why she stores the store well.

Teresa wants to expand the business and make a new investment but needs capital, hence why she is seeking a loan to allow her to buy what is needed in the store. Teresa pledges to repay the loan and is confident of having a better quality of life.
