Lucrecia Adelina
Lucrecia Adelina is 29 years old and supports her 2 children. She has had a business selling fruit for more than 8 years.

Her store is located on the outskirts of the market, and she has always liked to work. She got her start with very little capital, but with a lot of drive and self reliance, little by little she increased her stock with the small earnings that her store produced.

The financing that she is requesting is for working capital to buy pineapples, bananas, limes, tomatoes, onions, and more. Her greatest dream is that each of her children finish their studies and that they continue with their education, as it will be a great help to them.
