Mujeres De Chuixac Group's story

Teresa Albertina is single and 37 years old. She completed primary school. She works selling traditional clothing and began the business with a small amount of capital that her father gave her. She has eight years of experience and counts on the support of her family.

She organizes a group and is requesting a loan that will help her purchase merchandise to supply her sales and to generate more income. She wants in the future to have a store and to be able to distribute her merchandise. The other group members work selling and raising caged birds.
