Teresa De Jesus's story

Teresa is a widow and mother of two sons, 25 and 20. The older one works and the younger one studies. She does not have the help of family members to cover her expenses and those of her sons. Her business consists of making bread and going out to sell it. She works from 5:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. She will buy flour, firewood, yeast, corn, cream, curds, milk, sugar, and other ingredients in order to make her sales products and keep her business going. She hopes to have greater productivity and increase her sales and income with which she will be able to get rid of her debt without problems. Her wishes are to expand her business, have more profits, improve her family circumstances, and generate employment in the bakery.
