Teresa Gueily's story

21-year old Teresa is single and has no children. To earn her living she sells natural health products. She is enterprising, forward-looking, friendly, lively, chatty, independent, responsible, and very hardworking.

Teresa's business is located in the Miraflores area, in the vicinity of the well-known Hernando Siles Stadium where all the La Paz football clubs play in the Bolivian Professional Football League. All the main Bolivian football matches take place there too. The stadium has a capacity of 46,000 spectators and is located 3,700m above sea level.

Teresa has a dark complexion, long brown hair, and is of average height. Her native language is Spanish. She sells natural health products to prevent anxiety, aging, arthritis, high cholesterol, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, dermatitis, stress, gastritis, and to help with weight loss and digestion.

Her dream is to have her brand recognized at the national level and to help her clients improve their health by introducing them to a variety of products. She needs to buy merchandise in bulk so she can compete in the marketplace and generate more income.

For these reasons Teresa is seeking a loan to buy natural products in bulk to introduce to her customers.
