A loan of $450 helped to purchase blouses, dresses, skirts and shoes.


Teresa's story

Teresa is 47 years old. She has five children, three of whom attend school and the other two are currently abroad. She supports three grandchildren who live with her. She has been a seller for over 20 years and works in the yard of her house, which is located very close to a market.
With the amount of the loan she'll purchase an assorment of clothing, such as blouses, dresses, skirts and shoes, in order to boost her business.
Her dreams are to make her business grow and oversee her children's studies.
In the future she intends to build a store in the yard of her house, since she sells outdoors.
