A loan of $925 helped purchase clothing.


Maria Teresa's story

Teresa is an enterprising woman. She used to manage her current business with her husband, but on a trip from Reynosa to Linares he had an accident and passed away in 2001. Due to his death, Teresa assumed responsibility of the business and continuing with the sales. One of her daughters, the youngest, helped her install the clothing stand, attends to clients and accompanies her on her supply trips to Reynosa. For the last 7 years she has enjoyed sales and has not resisted joining in. Currently, many people in the various markets know Teresa and things are going well for her. She has clients who buy from her in installments.
Teresa needs a $925 loan which she will repay in 6 months to purchase merchandise so that she can rotate the cloths she sells.
