Lesbia Del Rosario
View original language description ↓

At the market in the town of Condega, Mrs. Lesbia B. sells vegetables, a business she has had for the past 10 years. Being a very cheerful person, she has earned the trust of many clients who have visited her daily to buy their products and thus she is able to support her two children as a single mother.

Since she does not have anyone else to support her, she has sought ways to improve her financial situation and for this reason she has received loans from Ceprodel that have allowed her to improve her business as well as the lives of her two children. Her greatest need now is to purchase vegetables from her suppliers, and therefore she again is relying on Ceprodel to provide her with the necessary credit to achieve this.

Translated from Spanish by Amani Roland, Kiva volunteer.
