Tereza Elena's story

Teresa has grown in business thanks to the previous loan she got from Fundación Alternativa. Alongside her food business she’s been able to acquire clothes, cosmetics and costume jewelry that she sells from home; she manages and organizes orders placed by her new customers there. She hopes to be able to buy mannequins to display the clothes at home so that people visiting her to look for clothes can better visualize what she has on offer. Teresa dreams with being able to provide her children with an education she was unable to get and this is why her enterprising spirit has brought her to use her free time in this commercial venture that she can carry out without neglecting her family or her food business. Teresa hopes for support from all Kiva lenders in order to enlarge her business and be able to reach her dreams.
