Lesvia Vicente
Lesvia is a hard working woman who with her son’s help and experience has a gym with special machines for people who want to do exercise and have good health.

Living in a periurban zone she was able to use a few savings a while ago to get a business that would generate funds to support her family and be near her son. She learned the business with help from her son working all day tending to customers who require gym services.

She has many hopes for the business and wants to continue working alongside her son. This is why she wants to provide better customer service using the loan to buy machines for the gym and cement to improve its construction. In the future she’d like to better equip the site so that her customers will be more comfortable.
