Teresa De Los Ángeles's story

Teresa is 41 years old. She is a widow and has 7 children, 5 of which are dependent on her, and all of them in school age. She lives in a community called Guanacastal. She is an energetic, hardworking and enterprising person with dreams and goals to fulfill. She has worked growing 2 mz (1 mz = 1.74 acres) of bananas for 6 years with the support of her only son, who helps cleaning the banana plantation, applying the insecticide to kill the plague. She has the necessary experience to continue with this work. She needs to buy manure, herbicide and insecticide to help her banana crops and be able to have a good production. Teresa's goal in the future is to be able to have her own house and be able to give her children a deserved home.
