A loan of $700 helped to pay off a debt and to buy vegetables to restart her business.


Teresa Marleni's story

Teresa is 29 years old and studied up to Grade 7. Due to her family's economic situation she couldn't continue her studies. She is married and her husband works as a security guard for the Municipal government. She has two children, the first is 9 years old and is in Grade 3. The second is only 3 years old and doesn't study yet. Just her and her husband and children live together.

At the moment Teresa does not have an activity that generates income, she just takes care of her daughters. Her revenue depends on the help of her husband. She has no activity because about 3 months ago she got sick that stopped her from running her small business. She sold vegetables. Her husband helped her to transport the vegetables from the city.

The loan that she is requesting from CrediCampo is to cancel a debt that she has. When she was sick she had to find someone to lend her the money for the expense of the medicine. She is also going to buy vegetables to re-open her business as it is something that is profitable. With the loan she will be able to have her business by buying what is necessary and thus she will have revenues to pay for the family expenses along with her husband.

Teresa's dream is to prepare her children academically. Before she used to say that it seemed very far away to having an adequate home like the one they have today, but thanks to the efforts of her husband they have succeeded. So they can continue to progress hoping to provide the best for their daughters so they can get ahead and help others that need it and contribute to having a better country.
