A day after Teto arrives in Porto Remanso, Paula leaves the region to serve indigenous communities with Tawan, leaving the former immersed in gloom. Meanwhile, Teto’s business partners Igor and Monique end up in the region. They find out that the only way to sell tomatoes in the region is by selling their company to Everaldo, who has a monopoly in the tomato market. Igor and Monique are open to selling the company but Teto wants his company to exist without Everaldo’s intervention as he tries to save the same by striking a deal with the Hipanaa community. He joins the community to become one of their own, parting ways with the comfort he has cherished since his birth.

Rich in Love 2 Ending: Do Teto and Paula Break Up or Stay Up Together?

Teto and Paula end up together. Teto and Paula’s relationship gets threatened when the latter leaves for the Amazon to serve the indigenous communities residing in and around the region. As a committed doctor who wants to make a difference in the lives of the underprivileged, Paula prioritizes the opportunity to leave for Porto Remanso over her own personal life and togetherness with Teto. The doctor doesn’t leave Teto because she doesn’t love him. She leaves him because she considers the survival of these communities a more pressing issue than the time she can cherish with her partner. Teto, however, fails to understand the same.

Teto’s love for Paula stops him from realizing how important her work is for the latter. Rather than supporting her, he seeks ways to make her return to him so that they can marry. Teto even proposes to her hoping that the same will make her reunite with him but it only exposes him as the doctor realizes how shallow her partner is. After cherishing the luxuries of being a Trancoso, Teto has forgotten that there are people in this world who need assistance and care, which makes Paula rejects his proposal. The rejection, however, ends up becoming an eye-opener for Teto, who sets out to change as a human being.

After ending up in the Hipanaa community accidentally, Teto decides to reinvent himself. He starts to forsake the comfort and security of being a rich man’s son to become one of the community members. He starts to work and talk like a member of the Hipanaa community. His commitment to helping the group of indigenous people, with hard work and dedication, impresses the members of the community enough to accept him as one of their own. Paula witnesses the change in Teto and acknowledges the same. She realizes that her partner is trying his best to become independent and help others rather than living in an ivory tower.

Even after settling the affairs with Everaldo, Teto doesn’t take Paula for granted. He only focuses on improving himself as a human being by continue living with indigenous communities rather than using the changes in him to convince Paula to be his partner. Upon getting impressed by the maturity and growth Teto displays, she reaffirms her love for him, which makes them stay together.

Do Igor and Monique Sell Teto Fresco? Does Teto Save His Company?

Ever since receiving an astounding offer from Everaldo for Teto Fresco, Igor and Monique consider selling the company they co-own to the businessman to earn three million each. Teto, however, doesn’t want to sell his company to the business tycoon. Rather, he wants to strike a deal with the Hipanaa community so that he can use a business partnership to save the community from exploitation. Although Igor and Monique decide to move forward with the sale eventually, Teto succeeds in stopping them at the last minute, especially after learning that Everaldo is a criminal who uses his tomato business as a front for the illegal mining of gold with mercury, which causes the secret illness present in the region.

Teto convinces Igor and Monique that Everaldo wants to buy their company to expand his illegal mining by using Teto Fresco as a cover for his future operations. Teto exposes the businessman, which leaves him in no position to buy Teto, Igor, and Monique’s company. The two friends finally accept Teto’s wish to strike a deal with the Hipanaa community, which yields tremendous results. Teto Fresco ends up having immense growth as a company due to the increase in production of the tomatoes by joining hands with the indigenous community. The company becomes not only safe but immensely profitable when Teodoro restarts buying tomatoes from his son’s company.

Why Does Dr. Tawan Accept Bribe From Everaldo?

When Teto, Paula, and Wunin find out the truth about Everaldo, they witness the businessman meeting with Dr. Tawan to ask the latter to stop conducting tests among the indigenous community members. Everaldo offers him money and promises to build a hospital in his name, in addition to an award, in return for his silence. Tawan accepts the money, infuriating Paula as she believes that her mentor is accepting bribes from the businessman to destroy the communities he is supposed to serve and save. Tawan, however, doesn’t accept the bribe because he wants money.

Tawan went to Everaldo with a hidden camera which shoots the businessman revealing his plans to expand illegal mining in the indigenous land, destroying their lives.
