Teresa De Jesus's story

Teresa lives with her family. She is married and her husband is 53 years old. Her children are 15 and 17. Teresa sells fruits and vegetables in the morning, but she also sells American clothes in the afternoon. She conducts both of her businesses every day.

The loan she is requesting will allow her to buy merchandise such as apples, grapes, oranges, bananas, cassava, pumpkins, tomatoes, as well as clothes and other items. This investment will help strengthen her business so that she can generate more income. Her dreams are to see her children study at the university and to grow her business.
