Tessie Donato manages a convenience store in her community. It was not easy for her because of the low income and unavailable capital to improve her business. Tessie joined Opportunity International and received valuable training and a loan to invest in her business. She plans to use her loan to buy additional products so she can better meet her customers' demands. She dreams that someday she will be a successful entrepreneur and plans to have a family in the future, which she will support with the income from her convenience store.
