Teresa's story

Teresa is 62 years old and is a native of el Sauce a community located in the north of the region. She is hard-working, responsible and has the desire for personal improvement. In her spare time she enjoys being in the company of her children. Unfortunately due to a lack of financial resources she could not study but had to work at an early age to help support the family economy.

Thanks to her effort and desire to get ahead she sells new clothing like pants, jeans, dresses, shorts, blouses, bed-clothing, towels and underwear. She spends 10 hours a day offering her product so that in the near future she can make more money. Teresa thanks the lenders at Kiva for supporting people of low resources in poor countries like Nicaragua to have dignified work.
