A loan of $1,000 helped to buy beans, milk, eggs, bread, and more.

Teresa's story

Teresa lives in her own home with her son and daughter-in-law. She has a store where she sells basic necessities such as beans, milk, eggs, bread, and other products. She has had this business for many years, and this has given her experience in sales, which now helps her to make better profits. The store is situated in her home, in a location with many passers-by. It is very well known by people in the neighborhood, and she has built up many customers as the store is well-stocked.

She wishes to grow the business and invest in it, but she needs capital. For this reason she is seeking a loan which will allow her to buy the necessary items for her store. She promises that she will repay the debt, and feels sure that the loan will give her family a better quality of life.
