Teresa's story

Teresa is 42 years old, married and has three children who work and are in school. She makes a living in commerce, since she has a convenience store and sells used clothing brought from Brazil. She does good work and says that her husband is a gardener who works at various homes in Asunción, San Lorenzo and other cities. Thanks to their work they have been able to take care of themselves and help pay for their children's education. Teresa has shown herself to be very responsible and honest with her promises. She is requesting the loan to purchase beverages, noodles, rice, sugar, herbs, meat, fruits and other items for her store, and also buy used clothing. She is grateful for this opportunity, which will be a big help.
